A poll of 2,000 adults found nearly half (47%) claim they enjoy shopping for new clothing, with the average Brit spending £70 a month updating their wardrobe – although a fifth will spend £100 or more. But the post-shopping glow doesn't last long, with 22% admitting the excitement of the item's “newness” is fleeting. And 17% soon start to develop doubts about whether or not they actually like their new purchase – until the shopping high turns to guilt for 56% of consumers. Brits typically shop for new clothes five times a month – but as the cost-of-living crisis continues to bite, three-quarters are now seeking bigger savings when they do so. And garments needn’t be brand new for cash-strapped Brits to get their retail therapy glow – as more than half believe it just needs to be new to them.

THE Xbox 360 changed the face of console gaming, and here are the very best games on offer.
