Do Kate and Davina have you hitting the gym? [Getty]
January - or the more aptly named Banuary - is in full swing. And for many of us, it’s becoming more than a little tiresome: the no-fat skinny carb/wheat/gluten/taste free foods are less desirable by the hour and the cold trek home from the gym has lost its sass. So why are we doing it? Apparently, a new study has the answer.
According to research released today, a woman weighing less than ten stone and below a size 14 is perceived as most attractive *cue eyeroll* Plus apparently being over ten stone is a diet trigger for women, with both men and women voting Kate Middleton and Davina McCall as having the most desirable bodies.
Although there's no denying Davina and Kate look great, does having idealised examples of the 'perfect' body shoved in our faces make you more likely to reach for your comfy onesie rather than your Nike Flyknits? Pass us the cronuts.
