A Twitter user has gone viral after listing the activities that make Brits in lockdown 'middle class'.
Flic Everett, a writer from Scotland, went online to share the 14 common ventures people are undertaking  as the nation stays home amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Among the popular activities, baking banana bread, growing tomatoes and having a sourdough starter are on the list.
Elsewhere having drinks on social video-calling app Zoom,  enjoying a 5pm gin and even fancying British Conservative Party politician Rishi Sunak are also listed.

Taking to Twitter, Flic wrote: 'Middle class Lockdown Bingo: play here!

'I'm scared bc most of this is my normal life', one person wrote, while another admitted they did eight of the activities mentioned, writing: '8 and a bit. Christ I hate me.'
But some agreed with the mention of tea, with one arguing: 'Tea's a bit harsh. Not sure that's just the middle classes...'. 
Elsewhere one joked: 'You forgot ordering/trying to find yeast', while another said: '11/14 here, but need to state for absolute clarity that defo don't fancy the Tory boy.'

And suggesting other middle class activities, one said:  'One form of exercise = wild swimming', while another said: 'You forgot jigsaws'.
Coming up with more suggestions, another said: 'Harvesting nettles to use as spinach', while one added: 'No, wild garlic pesto!'.
'Harvesting hemlock that you think is parsley', one said, while another tweeted: 'Guilty pleasure - re-watching entire five series of #LastTango on iPlayer - middle class #Emmerdale.'
One joked: 'Sushi on the balcony after a spot of pulse yoga .... yah'.  
And one despaired: 'I have not done a single thing on that list. Can you please add ‘Stand in a queue for 40 minutes around the Waitrose car park’ before I disappear without trace from the middle class?'.
