ITV News viewers reveal their top New Year's Resolutions for 2016

An ITV News poll has revealed our viewers top ten New Year's resolutions for 2016.

From self-improvement through fitness and changes to diet, all the way to charity work, learning a new language and stopping smoking, our poll showed where some of our viewers hoped to be in 2017.

Take a look at the results below.

  • 1: Do More Exercise/lose weight

Most who voted vowed become fitter, slimmer versions of themselves in the year ahead: The majority of votes cast were to pledge commitment to the gym or to watch the calories in 2016.

  • 2: "Other"

Many who voted hit the mysterious 'other' button in our poll - which we admit rather fudges the figures somewhat.

Using comments on our Facebook page, some of the resolutions under this choice may include "learn to play guitar", "save money" and to "live life to the max" - all worthy resolutions, of course.

  • 3: Cut down on alcohol

It seems the festive period took its toll on those who like an alcoholic beverage.

A pledge to cut back on alcohol is certainly a healthy option - especially at this time of year.

4/5: Joint result: Stop smoking/get a better work and life balance

Two very important resolutions and we hope you all stick to them. Cutting out smoking has tremendous health benefits and, as they say, "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy... "

  • 6: Change your relationship status

Be this online or in 'real life', we wish you the best in finding happiness and true love - whatever your relationship status!

  • 7: Be a nicer person

A resolution that perhaps everybody should try and stick to.

A positive attitude can have a huge impact in your community, and your social and work life.

  • 8: Spend less time on social media

Well, OK. Maybe. But be sure to still follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news, naturally.

  • 9/10 JOINT: Learn a new language/do more for charity

Hola! A dead heat for last place in our chart. An equal amount of viewers said they hoped to learn a new language or do more for charity.
