This was closely followed by having perfect hair and looking good in a photograph. A smile from a stranger, a cud¬dle and being told 'I love you' were also guaranteed to make a woman feel attractive and sure of herself, according to the study. Researchers found four in ten girls immediately feel better about themselves if they look good in a photograph. And a further 40 per cent feel great if they wake from an unin¬terrupted night's sleep.

Viewers could not even drag themselves away from the coverage for long enough to shop online, with internet sales rising just 4.8pc in August - the slowest rate of growth since the RRC started collecting the data four years ago.
