Taking vitamin pills and attending Glasto among top signs of midlife crisis

Flags at Glastonbury this year

The top 40 signs of a midlife crisis include going to Glastonbury, taking vitamin pills and reading the obituaries.

A new study has found the male midlife crisis hits at age 43 and typically lasts between three and ten years.

However women get off more lightly only suffering a midlife crisis at age 44 for between for two and five years.

Other typical signs include looking up ex-partners on Facebook, taking out a direct debit for a charity, or joining twitter so that your bosses think you 'get' digital.
