The last-minute festive shopping rush is set to spill over into a record-breaking online Christmas Day splurge with 117 million visits to retail websites expected on December 25.

It comes as retailers make a final sales push to win trade from those who have left their spending to the very last minute, with a separate report suggesting 17.5 million would be hitting stores on Christmas Eve.
