A new study has found that the average woman is unable to keep a secret for longer than 47 hours.
Women will generally have a gossip about a new secret with at least one other person in 47 hours and 15 minutes.
The study of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 65 also found that four out of ten could not keep a secret, no matter how confidential the news was.
Alcohol was named as one of the culprits for making it easier for women to blurt out new information among their friends. The study found that women generally hear up to three pieces of gossip a week and will pass it onto at least one other person.
Six in 10 end up telling someone completely uninvolved so the person the secret belongs to won’t know.
