British women have on average more than 5hrs 30mins of leisure time every day

London: British women are way ahead when it comes to getting leisure time, as they have on average more than five-and-a-half hours downtime every day, researchers have found.

Girls spend over two hours watching TV and listening to the radio and the same amount of time socialising and on entertainment and sport, reportedly.

Fellas spend even more time having fun - six-and-a-half hours, on average. But women do spend two hours and 13 minutes on jobs such as cleaning, washing and shopping, while British men spend an hour and six minutes doing chores.

And while 52 minutes a day goes on childcare for women, the total is just 26 for men.

The study, by analysts at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, put UK women second only to Norway in the leisure stakes.

Average daily leisure time for women globally was four hours and 42 minutes.
