Have you ever watched David Beckham playing football and wondered why it was making you weak at the knees?

Or seen a surfer on the beach and watched in admiration at his bravery?

Research by sports and hobbies website www.clubbz.com might hold the answers: they recently took a poll of 1,392 Brits to find out which hobbies are the most attractive to the opposite sex.

The study revealed that nearly half of men and just over two-thirds of women would be more likely to find someone desirable if they had a number of different hobbies, as it made them seem more exciting and interesting.

See which ones made it into the top 10.
