hotukdeals - a 2020 roundup!

Hi folks

I’m hardly breaking news here to say last year was something of a nightmare, in so many ways. 2021 has had a bit of a rocky start too - but I know all of us are hoping for much brighter times ahead as the vaccine rolls out and we can start seeing each other in the flesh again.

At Christmas, the team shared their feelings on 2020 and we loved hearing back from you all about your experiences and especially the positive things you were taking our of the year.

After a very serious first week of 2021, we want to follow that up with a look back at the hotukdeals year of 2020. Here’s a round-up of what was hottest, most voted on, most discussed and more. Bit first, an absolutely MASSIVE thanks to everyone who posted deals, commented, voted, clicked and generally made our site a place millions of people wanted to spend their time (probably to escape from the real world!). We appreciate it so much, and look forward to some hopefully cheerier times together in 2021!
