One in ten ‘would pick TV over partner’

Around one in ten Britons love television more than their partner, a new study has revealed.

The survey showed that 13% of people would rather dump their significant other than throw out their TV set for good, The Daily Telegraph reports.

Meanwhile, over half of those questioned (51%) admitted that television programmes were an integral part of their lives and something they would not be able to live without.

Others confessed to finding TV shows comforting and relaxing – 11% said that they felt safer with the television on, while 35% confirmed that they switch on their sets when they cannot sleep.

The research was carried out by QVC to mark the launch of its involvement in ITV1’s late-night teleshopping slot The Zone.

Speaking of the results, QVC’s marketing director Sue Leeson commented: ”Brits have always loved the TV and the wealth of entertainment it provides.

Whether it’s for education, fun or shopping, TV has become a part of the family.”
