London: New stats from a social discovery platform show that UK men like their women to be more Kelly Brook and less Kate Moss. When looking for a date 27% of men wanted a curvy silhouette compared to only 2% who were after a supermodel shape.

But both men and women agreed that a nice face was more desirable than a great body. When asked to name the most important feature they look for, both sexes chose nice eyes and a great smile.

With 22 % of men looking for nice eyes and 20% wanting a cute smile compared with 8% who think a good bum is most important, 7% who want great breasts and 3% looking for perfect pins in their partner.

Women are pretty similar, 25 % want nice eyes and 22% a sexy smile compared with 3.7% who think a good bum is most important, 2.7% who want a muscled man and 2% looking for a sexy six-pack.

Other findings include:
