Default Second lighter socket fitting

I intend to fit a second lighter socket to the inside of the centre console for the purpose of plugging in a double USB charger or for the satnav. I would prefer not to piggy back it or share any other 12v supply so ... is there a spare / defunct fuse in the box I could use for this?
If so ... would it be numbered for identification.
I confess I'm not very electrically minded when it comes to these type of projects so ... if anyone has done this could you supply some info or a diagram? Thanks for any info.

Hello,
There was certainly a kit available from MG-Rover for that very purpose. I know because I had it fitted along with the towbar when I first acquired my Rover. Hence, there is probably a feed from the loom already in place. The experts will confirm, I'm sure.

Thanks for the info, hopefully will have some confirmation and diagram, don't properly understand electrical stuff tbh so will require an 'idiots guide' haha.
