They said they were more likely to kiss someone who had not brushed their teeth. Five percent said they would prefer to kiss Boris Johnson and 7% would kiss Donald Trump rather than kiss someone who had recently been puffing on a cigarette.

So it's probably just as well for the future of love and romance that smoking has dropped by 3% among 11-15 year olds. The proportion of young people who have never smoked continues to increase and stood at 84% as of 2018, the last year we have statistics for. However, this does not reflect an increase in the use of e-cigarettes amongst school children. A quarter of pupils report that they have tried using a vape or e-cigarette an increase of 3% since 2014.
