Abigail Sutton from TopCashback.co.uk discusses apologetic money

We spend on average of £111 a year on apologising. With that being expensive, wouldn't an apology or making a nice meal be cheaper and perhaps go a long way? Well, to find out, Georgie was joined in the studio by Abigail Sutton from TopCashback.co.uk.
