Three in 10 expect to be in debt after Christmas, study finds

Three in 10 British adults expect to be in debt after Christmas, research has revealed

 

ComRes also carried out a winter savings poll which showed that 30% of participants were worried about the cost of Christmas this year.

More than two in five (42%) adults said they were concerned about the cost of gas or electricity bills, and a third were worried about the cost of food.

Watchdog presenter Steph McGovern said: “Everyone wants to make the most of the festive period but it can be a real financial strain for some.

“By highlighting ways to save on costs we want to help people enjoy the festive cheer without the debt hangover.”

:: The final episode of Watchdog airs at 8pm on Wednesday on BBC1.
