Black Friday is tipped to become the busiest shopping day on record, according to Nationwide Building Society.

Britain's biggest mutual is forecasting that spending on 25 November will be up by seven per cent compared to Black Friday last year.

The average shopper is expecting to spend a whopping 223, with two fifths hoping to get Christmas presents at a reduced price, and more than a third using the sales to buy items they need amid the rising cost of living.
