Average Briton spends 26 days a year watching on-demand TV

UK adults spend an average of 12 hours a week watching on-demand TV, around eight times longer than they spend exercising, a survey has found.

The survey also found that the average adult spend 17 hours using a smartphone or tablet and 12 hours using social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In comparison, they were found to spend just one hour and 30 minutes a week doing moderate physical activity such as riding a bike, playing tennis or hiking.

Of those questioned, 14% said they did not do any exercise at all and 13% said they did fewer than 30 minutes of moderate exercise a week, meaning 27% of adults are classed as physically inactive.

Only 27% said they did more than 150 minutes of exercise, as recommended by the chief medical officer.
