Just under a third said they now get on better with their Mother.

Most people moved back home for financial reasons - whether they were a student, or working.

Just 60% of respondents said they contribute to household expenses - but almost all said they do some chores.

Half of parents living with an adult child would like them to move out - but 73% admit they would miss them when the day does come.
