Manic Monday could be even bigger than Black Friday for Christmas shopping.

If you haven't heard of it before, Manic Monday is the name given to the second Monday in December, when people realise they need to get a move on and buy their presents if they're going to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

It's typically the busiest day of the year for online shopping, and this year is expected to see £750 million spent online. Experian says there will be more Christmas shopping done today than on Black Friday.
