One in five people admit to texting while on the loo, according to a survey by online bathroom retailer

A survey of 2,000 people in the UK revealed that almost a quarter – 22% – of over 45s, more than a fifth of under 35s and nearly 12% of over 55s have updated their social media status while on the toilet.

The study also found that men are nearly three times more likely to answer their phone to their boss while using the toilet compared with women. However, women are twice as likely to answer their phone to their boss while in the bath. MD Julian Smith said: “I don’t think people will be turning their bathrooms into their office space anytime soon but it has definitely become the place to update your Facebook status, make those last-minute shopping purchases, chat with friends, family, and in some cases answer the phone to your boss. I still believe that the bathroom also offers a place of solace and relaxation after a long busy day.”
