A study carried out by researchers at Canada’s Lakehead University has shown that alcohol affects women’s ability to rate attractiveness in male faces.

During the study, a number of women were put through a series of tests.

Results revealed that the more a woman had had to drink, the less well she was able to judge.

Dr Patrick Malluchi of the London Plastic Surgery Associates said: “What the drink is doing is overriding our rational ability to judge and perhaps transposing what we want to see on a person’s features, not what is actually there.”
