Emma Tagg, spokesperson from brand, said: "We’re all about finding your perfect somewhere and sunbathing is a great way to really switch off from your daily worries and focus on relaxing. Who wouldn’t want the job as a professional sunbather?!

"We’ve seen searches increase by 25% for July and August compared to 2021, so it’s clear that Brits are ready to go abroad and lounge around the pool.

“Popular spots such as Spain, USA, France and Italy remain the most searched for this summer.

"However, we found that Turkey is rocketing in popularity with searches up 260% compared to last year."

Body language expert Judi James - who regularly provides analysis for the Mirror -has outlined six-character types of sunbathers to look out for.

The sleeping beauty: A switched off, solitary and in the shade. Usually sporting a hat and there, for the peace and quiet – with six in ten admitting to being this type.

The sunbed space invader: Sunbed hoggers, usually seen sneaking down at 5am to reserve beds with with their towels. Even though four in ten admit to being this type of sunbather, 84% say they find this annoying.

The fidgeter: Fun and impulsive with limited time spent on sunbeds, always on the move.

The chill and refill: They have a cocktail and book in hand, they are self indulgent treaters rewarding themselves by switching off and relaxing - 67% of holidaymakers are this type.

The sun worshipping pro: A forensic tanner who will position themselves in the optimum place all day to achieve that perfect glow. This type is most jealous of the 64% of people who admit they come back from their holiday with an effortless tan.

The workaholic: Sunbathing accessories include a laptop and phone. They will be glued to their screen rather than the pool.
