Really? In the UK? I find that odd.
Here in the Cape Colony, where English-speaking culture is, obviously, Anglophile, we use Celsius. My parents used, in the old days, the Imperial system - pounds and ounces, pints and gallons, and pounds and shillings, etc. - but never Fahrenheit. Our old oven, mind you, was marked in both.
