It may not come as a surprise to find that Fifty Shades of Grey heart-throb Jamie Dornan is the star that Irish women would most like to kiss.

The Christian Grey actor received 32% of the vote in a recent survey asking Irish people who they would most like to share a smooch with.

The 35-year-old star has become a global star since he first appeared as the sexy title character from the EL James books.

Australian actor Hugh Jackman came second with 15% of the vote.

As for the men, it was Emma Watson who they most wanted to kiss. The Harry Potter actress received 34% of the vote, with Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland coming second with 16%.

The survey was carried out by NOW TV who quizzed more than 1,800 Irish adults about their love lives.

Interestingly, 25% of people admitted that they and their partners had an agreement in which they could smooch with their favourite celebrity if the opportunity presented itself.

If they could critique their partners without any consequences, then one in three Irish people would describe their loved one as stubborn.

Other criticisms of partners included ‘taking up too much of the bed’ and ‘being messy’.

The survey also found that 22% of women believe their partner is too dramatic, while only 14% of men said the same thing about their partners.

Aside from the complaints and celebrity crushes, Irish couples are set to have a romantic Valentine’s Day.

Nearly three quarters will spend the evening with their loved one, with a romantic dinner or weekend away the most popular gifts.

Outside of the home, 96% of people admitted to having a “work” wife or husband with whom they share a supportive platonic friendship.

Work spouses can expect to be treated to cake, biscuit, lunch and even a card on Valentine’s Day.
