How did you score?

0: Not Middle Class - You’re a true person of the people. Kudos on ignoring the middle class masses, while you cycle to work on an adult-sized bike and chop vegetables with a knife like your forefathers.

1 – 4: A little middle class - Caught between practicality and opulence, you're an interesting mix. Perhaps you're resisting middle England or are a fast riser up the list. Is it worth getting a record player for those vinyls?

5-12 'Very middle class' - Secure in the upper-middle classes, your suburban home is full of Mulberrys, Nutribullets and the barbecue where you host your similarly well-to-do friends on a Sunday afternoon

13-16 ‘Extremely middle class' - There's no two ways about it! Celebrate this achievement by trying to fill your abnormally huge fridge and spending more time arranging fancy coasters than drinking your Chai tea off them.
