A survey of 1,000 Brits – 500 men and 500 women – found that 27 per cent of the women polled said that within weeks of moving in with their partner they started eating a less healthy diet, snacking on junk food and takeaways.

They blamed men for the change in their diet, saying they had a ‘negative effect’ on their eating habits and ended with them putting on weight.

The remaining 73 per cent said that men made little or no difference to their diet after moving in with them.
