DRINKING BEER, watching television and enjoying a cup of tea are just three of the top 20 things people are doing in the shower, according to new research.
A study of 2,000 adults who shower found many multitask to help stave off the boredom of the everyday wash and rinse.
The research, conducted by Triton Showers, found three in 10 adults brush their teeth in the shower while around four in 10 use the time to give their bath or shower a quick scrub.
Singing, shaving and doing exercise were among the most popular habits while some even admitted to having sex or going for a wee while in the shower.
More bizarrely still, around 12 per cent of respondents confessed to making a life-changing decision in the shower, according to the study published by The Sun.
A spokesman for Triton Showers, which conducted the study of 2,000 adults who shower, said: “The shower room is clearly so much more than an area simply designated for washing.”
Listening to audiobooks, catching up on your favourite TV shows via a tablet and washing pets also proved popular.
The study also revealed the average time it takes to have a shower as just under nine minutes
Most depressing of all, the study from OnePoll.com found one in 20 adults ate in the shower as it was the only place they were safe from the clutches of their children.

1. Sing along to some music
