Women spend £67,000 on nights out

So it's no maybe no wonder a new study by Macmillan Cancer Support discovered that four out of five women prefer a night in to a night out and the number one reason is the cost. The average night out costs approximately £41.30, compared to a much cheaper £25.60 for a night in.

Other reasons include the hassle of getting there and back, queuing at the bar and contending with "lairy" drunk people.

The study of 2,000 women aged between 25 and 35, done to launch the cancer charity's fundraising campaign Night In for Macmillan, also showed that we're so reluctant to go out, that 81 per cent of us have actually made an excuse to remain indoors.

Over half have alleged that we're not feeling well, while a similar amount said they couldn't afford it or that they were tired.

Not only that, 88 per cent of women wished they'd stayed home while they were on a night out.

Hannah Redmond, Macmillan's Head of National Events and Marketing, said: "Enjoy a Night In for Macmillan Cancer Support. It's an excuse to step off the social treadmill, kick off your shoes and get your friends round for a Night In to support people living with cancer."
