The city came out on top in the UK with 75 per cent of respondents saying they had some confidence in the way they looked.

A fifth of people surveyed said they loved their bodies and would not make any changes to their appearance.

Residents said their best assets were their eyes, skin and stomachs. However, the rest of the UK rated stomachs as their least-loved body part.
