Brits spend 100 hours in bath or shower each year, according a new study released today.
The study also shows that we spend nearly an average of 20 minutes in a bath.
It also found that 20% of men accuse their partner of showering too long compared to 15% of women, but reveals that in fact men spend 30 seconds longer in the shower on average.
The study by E.ON also states that those aged 18-24 take 25% more time in the bath and take twice as long in the shower than people older than them.
Over a quarter of people (26%) listen to music in the bathroom, while one in seven (15%) sing to themselves, the report added.
Female smokers can live 10 years longer by quitting before they reach middle age, according to a new report.
Scientists found those who kicked the habit by the age of 30 avoided almost any risk of dying prematurely.
ITV News' Tom Barton reports:
The health minister, Anna Soubry MP, has said she hopes the finding that smokers who quit can add years to their lives will spur them into action.
She said that she managed to quit smoking in her fifties and she feels much healthier as a result.
Sarah Woolnough of Cancer Research UK tells ITV News about the results of a study that claims women smokers can earn themselves 10 years of extra life by quitting the habit before middle age.
More than a quarter of a million people pledged to stub out their last cigarette during the "Stoptober" anti-smoking campaign, the Government has announced.
The month-long NHS quit drive, which runs until the end of October, encourages smokers to kick the habit.
Research suggests that those who successfully give up for four weeks are five times more likely to stay smoke-free.
Health minister Anna Soubry said the £5.7 million campaign had "exceeded expectations".
Professor Sir Richard Peto, from Oxford University, who co-authored the study into smoking habits, said:
The research study into smoking habits also concluded that those smokers who kicked the habit around age 30 avoided 97% of their excess risk of premature death.
Women aged 50 to 65 were enrolled into the Million Women study, designed to investigate links between health and lifestyle, from 1996 to 2001.
Participants completed a questionnaire about living habits, medical and social factors and were re-surveyed three years later. Women were monitored for a total of 12 years on average, during which there were 66,000 deaths.
Women smokers can earn themselves 10 years of extra life by quitting the habit before middle age, say scientists.
A study of 1.3 million women found that smoking tripled the chances of dying over nine years compared with non-smokers.
Most of the increased death rate resulted from smoking-related diseases such as lung cancer, chronic lung disease, heart disease or stroke.
The risk rose steeply with the quantity of tobacco smoked, but even light smokers who puffed fewer than 10 cigarettes a day doubled their likelihood of dying.
How cows make friends is to be investigated in a three-year study. Scientists want to understand more about "social networking" within dairy herds.
The aim is to help farmers improve the health and welfare of their cows, thereby increasing milk yields.
For the first stage of the research, high-tech "proximity collars" have been fitted to cows on a farm in Cullompton, Devon.
The collars use radio signals to determine how close one cow is to another, allowing scientists to map the animals' social interactions.
