LADIES, if this Valentine's Day has so far left a lot to be desired, next year aim your Cupid's bow at Essex men named Mark, Daniel or Colin, which Serenata Flowers say are the most generous.

The flower company analysed its UK-wide data to uncover the most romantic men across the UK and closer to home in Essex.

Serenata's Local Romeo name calculator found out who the more giving guys are followed by the least - typically called James, Michael or Stephen - as those customers who sent the least flowers.

But rest assured, a heart-warming 83 per cent of men across Essex buy flowers for the most romantic day of the year, whilst only 17 per cent of women share their love this way.

Flowers were also by far the most popular choice of gift with Serenata customers nationwide.
