Amazon UK has released its summer 2016 trends report, focusing on what products the nation has been hungrily clicking ‘add to basket’ on so far this year.

It’s a great opportunity for voyeurism, giving a glimpse into the purchases we make online that we never really imagine anyone viewing (today I learned that sporks are booming in the North).

Particularly of interest is the top 10 bestsellers in London, at least three of which I had to Google to work out what the hell they are.

The capital has for instance, been buying sheets and sheets of ‘Fujifilm Instax Mini Candy Pop Film’ – presumably parents trying to keep their children mercifully distracted with photography. There are two kinds of baby wipe in the top 10 meanwhile, perhaps speaking to an increased compulsion toward cleanliness, a sleep mask (for obvious reasons, it’s London) and then suddenly a David Bowie LP.

Here’s the top 10 in full (which, if bought simultaneously, would make for a weird night):

1. ‘Lean in 15’ by Joe Wicks, The Body Coach

2. Tommy Tippe Sangenic Compatible Cassette

3. Fire TV Stick

4. Water Wipes Super Value Box

5. ‘Deliciously Ella’ by Ella Woodword

6. Johnson’s Baby Extra Sensitive Baby Wipes

7. Premium Sleep Mask by Memory Soft

8. ‘Blackstar’ by David Bowie

9. The Life Changing Magic of Tidying

10. Fujifilm Instax Mini Candy Pop Film

    I wonder if any streets in America are named after Cassius Marcellus Clay, the white anti-slavery campaigner , whose name Muhammad Ali dropped when he realised he was named after a white man.

    If filling in an extra form puts them off then their heart wasn’t in it to start with. I really think these people are relishing deliberately misunde1tanding. Surely no one is that thick or uninformed?
