It can be easy to get caught up with the festivities during Christmas time - sometimes one drink leads to another leaving you with a bit of a hangover the next day.

Thankfully, scientists have been doing some work to figure out which type of alcohol tends to leave people with the worst hangovers.

Be careful next time you pop open a bottle of bubbly - because it's not good news!

"Prosecco and Champagne both contain little pockets of carbon dioxide which change how the alcohol flows through the blood stream, helping the body to adsorb the alcohol faster." the study said.

"Once in the bloodstream the Co2 competes with oxygen which is why you might feel a little woozy and rather drunk rather quickly leading to an exaggerated hangover in the form of a pounding head."

They did give some tips for reducing the impact of your hangover for the next day. Simply "drink a glass of water with every glass of Prosecco to reduce dehydration." - easy as!

If you are planning on drinking this silly season - remember to take things slow and in moderation and make sure you've planned a sober way home!
