Reading 123 has compiled a list of the most embarrassing ways people have lost their glasses.

The reading glasses retailer asked 2,130 people in the UK to share how they have lost their glasses, and the results were amusing.

A total of 29% of people admitted they regularly forgot their glasses were on the head. Other embarrassing stories included people losing their glasses in a public toilet, putting them in the washing machine, leaving them in the freezer and in a cake mix while baking.

Paul Gibson, managing director of Reading 123, said: ‘Probably the funniest story I ever heard is of someone accidentally baking their glasses after their toddler placed them in the cake mix. It took them nearly a week to find them and when they did, it was in front of a small family gathering to celebrate a wedding anniversary!’
