Laughing at Speedos is top guilty pleasure for Brits on holidayRex

If you find yourself laughing at other people's swimwear on the beach, you're not alone as a recent survey by online travel agency has revealed the top five guilty pleasures of Britons on holiday and having a chuckle at those in their Speedos topped the poll with 21 per cent of the vote.

Being more promiscuous than usual came in second with 19 per cent, followed by 13 per cent who admitted to drinking more, nine per cent who wear less than usual and seven per cent of people who eat more junk food.

Chris Clarkson, co-founder of, said: 'It's no secret that people have their own guilty pleasures when away on holiday. Drinking and eating more were confessions we grew to expect, but seeing that finding amusement in other people's swimwear choices was up there at the top was a revelation.'

The study was part of ongoing research of Britons' holiday habits and 946 people between the ages of 18 and 30 took part.
