More than half of British men (60%) are more concerned about heartbreak, than heart health, according to research by California Almonds. 

The study found 71 per cent believe love, romance and companionship are the key to a healthy heart.

The average millennial has had his heart broken as many eight times, with nine in 10 suffering some sort of major upset by the time he reaches 40. 

The main causes of heartbreak among young men include a break-up and unrequited love, with one in five now even choosing to avoid dating entirely, purely to ward off future upset.

Aston spoke to Dr Alex George, former Love Island contestant now UK mental health ambassador for the Department of Education.
