If you're unlucky in love and desperate to settle down, you may soon be seeking a prescription from your GP, as scientists have announced they have invented an 'attractiveness' pill to help Britain's lonely and broken-hearted.

Based on a powerful secret formula of pheromones - odourless chemicals detected by an organ in the nose which many scientists believe could be the key to choosing a suitable lover - these pills have successfully been trialled in mice and rats and are awaiting licence for the UK market.

A spokesperson for the pill's manufacturers declined to comment further about an expected approval date but did confirm the pill will be called 'Luvolol.'
