New research by Charlie Bigham’s has revealed that 31% of Brits believe that the kitchen is the sexiest place in the house, outside of the bedroom.

A further 17% of British couples also admitted that their partner preparing dinner is the biggest turn on, beating the likes of DIY and cleaning as the most attractive acts. Whatever happened to stripping, we ask?

The research also suggested that Brits think it’s more important for their partner to cook well than have a good body or be rich, with one in ten Brits preferring a good dinner prepared for them by their other half over a muscly body and lots of money.

Well, we are a nation of foodies – but have we taken things too far?
