IT’S now MUM who wears the trousers, when it comes to jobs like DIY and carv­ing the roast, ac­cord­ing to a new study.

The re­search shows that in seven out of 10 British homes, men now leave their other half to dec­o­rate, put up shelves and as­sem­ble fur­ni­ture.

And more than half of men con­ceded that it’s be­cause their wife or part­ner is bet­ter at these kind of tasks than them.

Two-in-three men also ad­mit­ted they don’t know how to wire a plug, while one-in-five con­fess they don’t know how to light a bar­be­cue.

The sur­vey, of 2,103 men and women, was car­ried out by bar­be­cue firm Bar-Be-Quick, whose spokes­woman said: “Men across the coun­try are now be­ing out­per­formed by women in their own ar­eas of ex­per­tise.”
