If you had to try and guess, who would you say probably takes more selfies out of a mother and her daughter? You would, we think it's fair to assume, say that the young millenial of a daughter would be guilty?

You'd be dead wrong, and by a lot more than you might think.

Mothers will take on average 2,196 selfies over the course of 2016, and their daughters? A mere 1,830 or five per day.

The polling from MyVoucherCodes saw over 2,000 respondents talk about the culture of taking selfies, why they take them and finally how many they think their kids take.

Of those that said yes around 29 per cent then revealed that the reason they like taking them is the attention they receive on social media, with a further 11 per cent saying they took selfies as a confidence boost.

A quarter of those asked said that they took selfies because they feel it's a vital part of modern life.
