What Britain Buys is an eye-opening and intriguing look at how we shop, which products we buy, and what our £6.7 billion a week shopping habit says about Britain today. This time, Mary Portas discovers how in 2016 it's not just what we buy, but how we buy, that is changing -with the switch to contactless spending, with cards, phones and even watches. Mary looks at the trend of putting snail slime on the face, and face masks for the bottom; at the millions of mums - and dads - doing the school run in leggings; what car pool karaoke means for the dash cam; how smart toys are affecting the way our kids play; and how virtual reality is on the verge of changing the way we all see the world.
