275x250.jpgA third of Brits keep a secret photo of an ex-lover hidden from their current partner,it has been revealed.

A poll of 1,781 men and women - which asked what they did with snaps of people the'd been in a relationship with - found women were more likely to keep photos.

While 36%, of adults in relationships around the UK admit to keeping a ‘secret’ photo of an ex-lover; without the knowledge of their other half, 62% of these were women.

Over half of these secret photos (56%) are said to be kept in a purse or wallet; whilst the remaining majority, 32%, are hidden away in a draw or cupboard.

And to make matters worse just over a quarter, 27%, of those who admitted to harbouring a picture of an ex-lover said it was ‘sexual’ in nature… well you can't get that from stalking them on Facebook.

275x250.jpgThe personal computer has now overtaken the family dog as 'man's best friend', a poll conducted by YouGov has found.

A recent survey discovered almost two thirds of us consider our computers as "a more constant companion than a dog" and that this is especially true for younger dog owners.

People are also now spending more time with their PCs than their pooches and with many people having ditched newspapers for online news sites, dogs are being relied on less to perform household tasks.

In fact, only 6% of those polled believe "most people rely more on their dog than they do on their PC" (probably people who need a lot of slippers fetching) while 67% think the opposite is true.

So if you had to do without your pet dog or your computer, which would it be? And remember your dog can't fetch you Newslite.

Despite jetting off to far-flung destinations, four in 10 people admit they only travel abroad for the sunshine.

A third say they prefer to stick with English food such as fish and chips than try anything more exciting from local menus.

And 47% even claim they would rather eat in well-known burger and fast-food restaurants than sampling some of the more exotic delicacies.

In fact, 22% won’t eat at restaurants which don’t have English speaking staff… though 'steak and chips' is understood pretty much around the world.

An ‘unofficial census’ also revealed a typical family spends £12 per week on booze, dines out with friends twice a month and curls up in bed at 10.39pm every night.
Researchers quizzed 2000 families who said their best form of entertainment was watching TV with their favourite show being Dr Who.
The average family also spends £76.02 on the weekly shop, £12 on booze, gets up at 6.57am get home from work at 5.15pm and has £3,280 in savings.
We also speak to just two neighbours, go on a family outing once a month, have two bust-ups a week and have just £10.31 in out pocket… which sounds about right to us.
