A new study has found that job losses and money worries are forcing British men to move back to their mums.
According to a report by the Office for National Statistics, a quarter of males aged 25 to 29 now live with their parents, and one in ten men aged 30 to 34, reports The Sun.
The report adds: "Many more advantaged young adults are not ready to 'settle down' during their 20s and are likely to return to the parental home before setting off once again."
The top area in the UK for "mummy's boys" is Northern Ireland, where 56 per cent of men aged 22 to 29 live with their parents. In the North East the figure is 46 per cent and 43 per cent in the West Midlands.
