From Love Island to the Prime Minister – top dinner discussions revealed | The Sun

BRIT'S favourite dinner-time conversation topics have been revealed in a new study.

Dinner has always been a great time to catch up and chat with family, but now a survey has uncovered which conversation topics are on the table.


The drama in Westminster might just be better than any TV show since politics in the UK emerged head of the table as the most popular subject of conversation for British families.

This was closely followed by current affairs in second and, clearly something on everyone's minds, the cost of living coming in at number three.

And, with a heatwave sweeping the nation, the weather proved to still be a very hot topic, ranking as the fourth most popular choice.

Local events rounded out the top five topics, narrowly beating out holidays and the family which came in at number six and seven.

But it's not all serious discussion over dinner as lighter topics still make the list.

Love Island proved to be the 14th most popular topic, only just less exciting than the Premier League at 13.

The Royal Family, celebrity scandals, TV soaps, and video games all also made it into the top 40 list.

However, this study also shows that Brits aren't shy about taking on some of the most thorny issues of the day as they sit down to eat.

Gender identity was the nation's 12th most popular choice of conversation, more popular than football, personal relationships, and films.

Environmental issues also feature heavily on the list, with sustainability and recycling both making the top ten.

Hayley Lloyd House, head of sustainability at Buxton who commissioned the survey, said: "Often, topics like current affairs and the environment are said to be best avoided when we come together for meals, that’s not so much the case anymore.

"Of course, there’s still plenty of room for discussion about more light-hearted things such as holidays or sports, but our research shows people are more engaged with issues affecting the future of our planet than ever before."
