Britons are swapping TV dinners for PC dinners as people in the UK increasingly combine their bites with megabytes, a new survey suggests.

It found three-fifths of people had settled down to eat their evening meal in front of a computer.

And more than a fifth had eaten their dinner hunched over their computer on a regular basis, according to online viewing service SeeSaw.com.

A total of 15% of the 2,000 people in the survey said they had watched TV on their PC while eating a meal.

A third of those in the study said they were more likely to eat dinner in front of a computer than they were 12 months earlier.

Come Dine with Me was the most popular choice of show for online munchers.

Nearly a quarter (23%) said their PC had replaced the TV as the main source of evening entertainment.

John Keeling, platform controller for SeeSaw, commented: "Millions of British people cannot tear themselves away from the internet, even for dinner. The growth of the PC dinner is a remarkable new trend and for many across the nation, has now replaced the traditional TV dinner."
