THE basket of goods used to calculate inflation will now include property show Grand Designs, the Office for National Statistics said last night.
The Channel 4 show in which middle class people attempt to show off exactly how middle class they are gained its place at the expense of ITV soap Coronation Street, which has was removed by the ONS for being ghastly.
Other new additions include allowing your three year-old to run around at other people's weddings and having your son diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder when he is really just spoilt and badly behaved.
An ONS spokesman said: "Changes in the basket are made to reflect the way that most people today want other people to think how they live.
"So, sitting on the sofa having your tea at six watching Neighbours has been replaced by supper at eight with the entire family clustered around a large farmhouse-style kitchen table discussing the major issues of the day.
"The Freeview box is in because it has BBC4 and obviously no one wants a big dish on their roof because this is not a council estate, thank you very much."
He added: "We’ve also removed battery eggs because even though we're all now buying them again we just can't bear to think about how those poor chickens have to live their lives."
