  • A third of Brits keep 'money secrets' from partners

    Around 30 per cent of Brits admit to not being totally honest with their partners about their spending habits, according to new research.

    Some 44 per cent have lied to their partners about the cost of a purchase, while one in ten respondents said that they had a secret savings account that their other half did not know about.

    Women are most likely to lie to their partners about the cost of clothing, with 27 per cent of those asked admitting to misrepresenting the price of an item, compared to just nine per cent of men.

    However, it seems that men's most guilty pleasure is gadgets as 20 per cent of male respondents said that they had lied about the cost of a boy-toy.

    Richard Dunn, managing director of Cater Allen, said: "While it has traditionally been considered bad manners to talk about money, this research shows that modern Britons are not comfortable with being upfront about their financial affairs too."
