How’s Your Personal Finance?

Throw away your latest OK magazine and stop watching Celebrity Juice. It seems
Mintel believes those who are interested in celebrity gossip are more likely to have
their finances in a mess. Or so it’s report on personal finance adhered to last year.

Research group Mintel found that those who were interested in financial news, rather
than celebrity gossip were more likely to have their finances in good order.

Making sure our personal finances are straight is key to long-term security. It’s
difficult to know what financial secure means, but the report did show that more than
40% of Brits thought they were ok off in 2012, 21% thought they were in a healthy
position. Only 2% are in real trouble and 7% are struggling.

Celebrity Juice

Only 11% of Brits admitted to following celebrity stories on a regular basis while
almost half the nation (48%) claimed not to follow celebrity news at all.

But, it’s no surprise that the fairer sex factored higher on celebrity gossip. 8% of men
paid a lot of attention to celebrity news compared to 14% of women.

Meanwhile men took more interest in news on the economy. 47% compared to 31%
of women.

Where’s The Money

On the plus side, apparently four times as many Brits read about the economy than
about celebrities. So we’re not such an uneducated bunch after all.

With just one in ten having no interest whatsoever in news and the economy.
