In the south east region, just 22 per cent of people have committed to popping the question to their boss.

The majority of these people are over the age of 54, while the lowest figures come between the ages of 18 and 24.

That same age bracket is also the least likely to receive a pay rise, the study suggested.

Forbes Advisor surveyed 5,100 people for the study.
