More than a third of British women would rather lose weight than have a pay rise, says a new survey.

With summer holidays fast approaching it seems shedding pounds is more important than saving them for 35% of working women in the UK.

The poll by travel website HolidayPlace.co.uk asked British women if they would rather lose a stone in preparation for the beach or gain £1,000 on their annual salary. Despite the recession only 65% opted for the pay rise with the remainder saying they’d happily forgo the salary hike for the chance to possess the perfect bikini body like Kelly Brook’s.

And almost one in ten, eight per cent, said they would happily give up £1,000 of salary if it meant they were assured of losing a stone effortlessly.
