Foot fetishes might be a thing but they have yet to catch on in Ireland judging by the results of a new survey. Considering that our feet don't tend to see the light of day from September until the following May, it's probably no surprise that we're not exactly comfortable about putting them on show. The research, conducted by Scholl, found that 66 percent of people living in Ireland dislike their partner's feet, and find them a turn "off". When it comes to men, the results showed that the worst offence is long nails and to be fair, I can see how that wouldn't be too appealing. For women, smelly feet is apparently what drives their partners mad, followed by cracked heels and "dodgy fake tan". Over 40 percent of those surveyed said that they stress about whether their feet have an "undetectable odour" that they're completely unaware of. Other statistics uncovered by the survey found that two-thirds of Irish people hate wearing shoes that show off their feet and do their best to avoid it. One of the reasons for this is that they haven't had time to pamper their feet with 34 percent saying they wished they had time to paint their toenails first.

I t's not the first time the Carrigstown star, who's from The Naul, Co Dublin, has had her body parts rated by strangers on the internet, with a creepy website once scoring her appearance as a corpse in BBC drama Ripper Street. Rebecca played prostitute Mary in the show, which ended up in her character meeting a grisly end. Last year, she was told by a pal that photos of her 'dead' body were being scored out of five. They take any photos they see of your feet and rate them from five and say, 'beautiful feet' or 'stunning feet'. They took photos from when I did a gym class barefoot.
