So what makes you go red?

We've just had a survey carried out of almost 2,000 adults across the UK - to find out the things most likely to make them go red.

It is of course National Heart Month, and we're trying to get you to go
Red for Heart

There's lots of ways you can do this in a deliberate manner. But what about those situations where you just can't help yourself blushing?

Well, straight in at number one, causing the most embarrassment with 59% of the vote, is waving back at someone who wasn’t actually waving at you in the first place.

At number two, with 29%, is expressing your love for someone, with men admitting to finding it much harder to voice their romantic feelings than women.

And a close runner-up at number three, with 28%, is someone commenting on your weight, which came out as a largely female hang-up.

Among other things that make us go red are farting, undressing or singing in front of a partner. A large number of people declared their stomachs the most embarrassing body part.

And overall, 56% of us recall turning red up to three times a week on average.

So there you have it, the nation's secret embarrassments revealed...

Let us know what makes you go red by posting a comment below!
