Scots admit to surfing web while on the toilet and during dinner


OVER one third of Scots have admitted to using the internet while on the toilet.

Research released today (Mon) by, the online TV service, shows that 37 per cent of Scots have surfed the web while sitting on the pan.

And the figure is higher than the national average of 31 per cent.

The research also revealed that nearly two thirds of Scots surf the web in bed and over one in 10 are more likely to check emails than kiss their partner goodnight.

Not only this but nearly a quarter of Scots are more likely to have a “PC dinner” than a TV dinner.

Over 67 per cent of Scots, compared to 60 per cent of the UK overall, have enjoyed an evening meal in front of the computer.

But many of those polled are using the computer to enjoy TV programmes with their dinner.

The favourite activity for Scots when eating their PC dinner is watching a TV programme (18 per cent).

According to all Scots polled, the programmes most likely to be viewed online when eating dinner were Top Gear and Come Dine with Me at 16 per cent each.

John Keeling, platform controller for SeeSaw, said: “This incredible research shows how millions of Scots cannot tear themselves away from the internet, even for dinner.

“The growth of the PC Dinner is a remarkable new trend and for many across the nation, has now replaced the traditional TV dinner.

“The relentless growth of technology means that Scots now enjoy many of their programmes online and who better to eat your evening meal with than Jeremy Clarkson or the cast of EastEnders.”
