London, Jan 14 : Brits really don't mind telling fibs, for not only does the average Brit man lie five times a day, but the women too lie at least thrice a day.
Brits really don't mind telling fibs, for not only does the average Brit man lie five times a day, but the women too lie at least thrice a day.

As for what these lies might be, well according to a new poll, the words 'nothing's wrong - I'm fine' is the most common fib.

The survey, for flavoured vodka brand WKD, found that the next most common fib was "Nice to see you" while "I haven't got any cash on me" was the third most common one.

And, women need not get their hopes up when their man tells them "I'll give you a ring" for it's the fourth most common lie that's told in the UK.

"Sorry, I missed your call" rounded off the list of the top five most commonly told fibs.

Other lies that made it to the list was "No, your bum doesn't look big in that", which came in at the eight spot, as well as "Of course I love you," which was 12th on the list, reports The Sun.

"I'm stuck in traffic", "What text?", "I had no signal", "Our server was down", "My alarm didn't go off," "The cheque is in the post," "My battery died," "The train was delayed," "I'll phone you back in a minute", "This tastes delicious" and "I'm going to the gym tonight" were all part of the top 20 list.
