Sorry chaps - girls aren't looking at you ... they're judging the competition
We are all guilty of looking twice at a celebrity. Maybe David Beckham's bum or Robbie Williams's cheeky chops, we've all got a favourite.
I admit I'm fond of Bradley Cooper's rugged looks and hair, while the other half is quite partial to Salma Hayek.
Apparently, he's not the only one.
A new survey claims women spend more time looking at other women than they do checking out men.

Not because we're attracted to them but because we're checking out their clothing and appearance.
I suppose with all the celebrities packed into magazines, this is pretty obvious.
We want to see the beachwear pictures of the latest film stars in a bid to make ourselves feel better.
Just spotting a stretch mark makes you feel better about yourself knowing that they're normal too.
I love looking at the photos to see who's too thin and whose bum looks big squeezed into the latest Stella McCartney dress.
I know I'm one of these women.
I'll hold my hands up and admit I look at celebs and other women to see what they're wearing just to tell myself that it doesn't matter how much a designer dress costs, if you look a mess, you look a mess.
Apparently, we're more concerned with how much cellulite other girls have, what their hair looks like and how thin they are. Usually I check out other women's shoes and clothes and I've even been known to ask where they got them from and gone and bought myself the same.
Shamefully, I also look at the size of other women and compare myself to them.
I don't think I'm alone in this.
I think we all compare ourselves to each other because we're never happy with the way we look.
On a day-to-day basis, 42 per cent of ladies said they dress to impress their female peers and not the opposite sex – and even on big nights out it's girls they are trying to impress, not men.
The poll by online retailer Swimwear365 claims 80 per cent of us are guilty of looking at other women most on the beach to check out each other's figures, tans and cleavage.
Helen Boyle, stylist for the retailers, said: "There is not a woman on the planet who doesn't love people-watching and having a sneaky look at other women.
"Women check out other women because they can relate to them and they know how hard it can be to keep a trim figure or maintain healthy hair, so there is obviously a genuine interest in how other females look."
One third of women surveyed said that they would be more impressed by a female with a toned physique than a man, while 42 per cent said they would compare themselves to some aspect of every woman they saw.
For all these years my other half's thought he has "still got it" as passing ladies would cast a glance our way – it must be a bit of an ego deflator for him to know they were just eyeing up my knee-high boots after all.
So next time you think a girl is eyeing up your fella, you'll have to think again because they've probably just got shoe envy – and who'd blame them?
