London: Eight in 10 adults put off following daily "to-do" tasks - causing domestic rows and financial problems, a new poll has revealed.

One in 10 surveyed admitted to feeling "overwhelmed" as they struggle to complete 3,869 chores each year.
These include tasks such as ironing, food shopping, paying bills and doing DIY.

Men are most likely to procrastinate, with 87 per cent looking for an excuse not to do chores, the poll by energy firm E.ON found.

This compares to 83 per cent of women.

More than one in five couples admit bickering over their partner's delay in getting things done, the study of 2,000 adults found.

"People are struggling to manage their lengthy to-do lists and this is playing on their mind," a daily quoted Anthony Ainsworth, from E.ON, as saying.
