Do Brits have their life priorities straight? Read this story and make up your mind.

According to a study of 2,003 UK adults, almost half of Brits (48%) would rather surf the internet than go see their loved ones. That’s right – Facebook before your father.

Also, one in eight (12%) UK adults admitted that they stay hungry for longer than they could stay away from social media. That’s right – Facebook before food.

Alarmingly, the study commissioned by Direct Line Home Insurance found that the internet is the most important modern day essential, even topping taking a bath/shower.

Katie Lomas, head of Direct Line Home Insurance, told the Standard: “What we deem to be essential is an extremely personal choice, and something that varies between individuals.

“For the average person, technology now dominates their list of essential daily comforts, perhaps because we are so reliant upon these items and enjoy the luxury of being connected.”

Here are the top 15 modern day essentials for Brits

  1. The internet / wifi
  2. Bath / shower
  3. TV
  4. Laptop / tablet / iPad
  5. Car
  6. Mobile phone / smart phone
  7. Pet cat or dog
  8. Washing machine
  9. Tea
  10. Coffee
  11. Book(s) / eReader / Kindle
  12. Comfy sofa or chair
  13. Make up
  14. Newspapers/magazines
  15. Chocolate
