It's official: British holidays makers are happy to bare all abroad, despite admitting that they would hesitate to go naked anywhere public in the UK.
According to research by online travel agent On the Beach, one in five holidaying Brits say they would gladly head to nudist beaches while visiting foreign shores, but only five per cent would shed their clothes back home in the UK.
The survey of 16,500 holidaymakers revealed that despite the fact that most think it's women that spend the most time soaking in the sun and attempting to diminish tan lines, it's British men that are most keen to get their kit off.
Almost one in three (27 per cent) of men were willing to head to a nudist beach abroad and 10 per cent admitted that they would use the nudist beaches back in the UK. In contrast, British women appear more reserved with just 12 per cent stripping off overseas and a tiny two per cent baring all back in the UK.
Alistair Daly, Chief Marketing Officer at On the Beach, said: "When on holiday, people often feel more audacious, confident in the knowledge they won't bump into neighbours, colleagues or old friends.
