In fact, they are willing to splash out £125 on average for professional help in the home in the lead up to the festivities. Of those who do bring in the experts for a number of jobs in the home for Christmas, more than one in three (39%) said they will have their oven cleaned by a professional.
This was followed by 27% who decide to get their Christmas tree dressed by an expert and one in five (20%) who opt to have a deep clean of the home done by a professional service.
Cooking the turkey was also on the list, as 18% confessed to having brought in a chef to help teach this.
In fifth place, 16% said that they hire a removal company ahead of the festive celebrations.
