Something For The Ladies: Construction Time Again

More than a third of women aged 19 to 79 agreed that men in hard hats got them hot under the collar.

Gardeners took second spot after turning the heads of 23% of the women polled.

A further 15% went for carpenters and joiners, placing them third, while electricians and plumbers shared fourth spot on 14%.

Women were also asked for their ultimate male outside of the trade world – and most plumped for a fireman.

A spokesman for the construction union UCATT said: “Heartening as it is for builders to top a poll for being the sexiest tradesmen in the UK, all those in the know – the wives and girlfriends of Britain’s builders
[None have boyfriends, obvs] – have long appreciated the strong and steady hands of the men who build this country.”

  2. Actavo Direct are shit. I've been waiting for a screw off them for ages.
