Women are more likely than men to eye up members of the opposite sex while on holiday with their partner, according to a survey.

Women are more likely than men to eye up members of the opposite sex while on holiday with their partner, according to a survey.

A total of 56 percent of men admitted ogling other women on trips away with wives or girlfriends, the poll by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.

But as many as 74 percent of women on breaks with their male partner confessed to checking out other men.

The survey also showed that 77 percent of those eying up the opposite sex try to cover it up, such as waiting until their partner was not around or hiding the fact behind sunglasses.

Some of those surveyed pretended to be looking at a member of the same sex, while others just made sure their partner did not see.

Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Clarkson said: “When looking into whether or not men and women in relationships ogle other people on holiday, despite being with their partner, it was interesting to see that women were the guiltier party. Either that or women are more honest.”

A total of 1,972 people who were in relationships and who had been abroad on holiday in the past 12 months took part in the survey. - Sunday Life
