It’s usually women who are expected to be sensitive about getting older, but new research from Diamond car insurance specialists has revealed men are more likely than women to tell white lies about their age. One in ten of the men questioned said they have lied about how old they are on their birthday, compared to one in fourteen women.

The study also surprisingly showed that we’re less likely to lie about our age the older we get. Men and women aged over 45 are the least likely to lie about their age, whilst those aged 25 to 35 are the most likely to.

Similar numbers of men (9%) and women (8%) have also asked friends and family not to mention their real age on their birthday because they felt too old. Despite being the youngest age group polled, more 18-24 year olds said they’ve insisted on this, the highest out of any of the age groups questioned.

Diamond car insurance managing director, Dave Halliday said, “Getting older is a touchy subject for many of us but it did come as a surprise that it’s us men who are more likely to tell fibs about our age on our birthday. And no, I’m not going to tell you how old I am!”

Over a quarter (28%) of those questioned said they don’t do anything on their birthday, whilst half said they just do something small. 15% said they always make sure they do something special every year and 7% of people just celebrate their ‘big’ birthdays.

But just because many men and women don’t want to celebrate, this doesn’t mean they don’t want their loved one to make a fuss. 50% said they would prefer it if no one made a fuss of their birthday however almost one in five (19%) have claimed they didn’t want a fuss made but have been disappointed when no one did.

Again, there’s a marked difference between the genders. Three of out of five men compared to two out of five women would rather no one made a fuss, but three out of five women compared to almost one out of five men said they would be disappointed if no one actually made a fuss.

Diamond is running a competition in-line with their 16th anniversary celebrations with a SEAT Mii and £500 to spend in New Look as prizes. Entrants are asked to visit www.diamond-roadtrip.co.uk and tell Diamond about their perfect road trip to win.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
