A survey of 1,000 people in Britain has revealed some stinking statistics about our hygiene habits; Londoners have been singled out as the dirtiest in the bedroom with over a third (37%) of those who have had a one night stand admitting to not washing the sheets after their debauchery.

The research, commissioned by on-demand laundry, dry cleaning and ironing service, ZipJet, reveals that people from London are also most in need of a clean pair of underwear, with almost half (40%) admitting to wearing the same pair of pants for three days or more. While 13% of Britain don’t appear to worry about washing their underwear, because they don’t wear any!

It’s not just Londoners who are grubby though, the survey revealed that people all across the UK could do with a good old scrub with almost a quarter (23%) showering less than three times a week and over 25% happy to wear the same t-shirt three days in a row or more. 

However, not all of the UK need hide their head in shame. Alan Partridge would be proud, as the findings discovered people from East Anglia are the cleanest when it comes to bedroom antics; 51% clean their bed sheets at least once a week. People from Yorkshire are the most house-proud in Britain, with 85% vacuuming their house and 80% cleaning their toilet at least once a week.
