Men living in a Northamptonshire town are among the most grumpiest in Britain apparently!

According to a new study, Corby is among top towns with the UK's most grumpiest men.

The survey looked at data from 250,000 men registered with a dating site to see how strongly they agreed with the statement "I laugh often'.

The scores were then averaged out by area and, as laughter is a sign of happiness, the towns with lowest scores determined where the grumpiest men in the UK live.

The results revealed that Victor Meldrew types would feel right at home in Corby - with men in the town being ranked as the UK's 7th grumpiest.

Top came Spalding in Lincolnshire.
