“It’s great to see those who prefer the rustle of a newspaper over the scroll of a screen are topping the charts in the dating game.

“In an era where digital screens dominate our attention, there’s an allure to those who appreciate the timeless appeal of ink on paper and the art of taking things slow.

“So, to all you newspaper readers out there, keep turning the pages and turning heads while you’re at it!”

Avid newspaper reader Sarah Collins, 41, said she had “learned not to trust news from social media sources.”

Reading a book, 20 per cent;
Reading a Kindle, 14 per cent;
Staring into space or daydreaming, 13 per cent;
Reading a magazine, 12 per cent;
