Men are more likely to tell lies than women and feel less guilty about it, according to a survey that polled 3,000 people.

Researchers found that the average British man tells three lies every day, that’s equivalent to 1,092 a year. However the average woman appears more honest, lying just 728 times a year – around twice a day.

Mothers/wives are the people mostly likely to be lied to, according to the poll conducted by the Science Museum.

Men’s top 10 lies:
1. I didn’t have that much to drink
2. Nothing’s wrong, I’m fine
3. I had no signal
4. It wasn’t that expensive
5. I’m on my way
6. I’m stuck in traffic
7. No, your bum doesn’t look big in that
8. Sorry, I missed your call
9. You’ve lost weight
10. It’s just what I’ve always wanted

5. I’ve got a headache
6. It was in the sale
