Surprisingly, 3% of the bookmakers questioned admit to having telephoned their mothers ‘just to see how they were getting on’ – without the promise of cash.

More than 42% of bookmakers are comfortable doing pedestrian activities, like making their beds or going to the supermarket - even if there is no prospect of ripping anyone off.

Bookmaker Keith Vim from Mugbet said: “The results are jaw-dropping.”

"People will start to think we are a soft touch - I'm cancelling all odds boost offers."

Bookmaker Dik Venom, from Mugbet said: “Sometimes I like to pop those blue plastic tokens in the charity bins at the supermarket, just for a laugh.”

“After a good day of skinning punters alive, instead of ploughing through a zebra crossing the second I see an old lady put one foot on the road, I stop the car.”

“But only if we’ve had a six-figure day.”

Punter Gareth Timms said: “So bookies aren’t lizard men who drink blood, or sacrifice peoples’ pets to ensure a profitable Flat season?

"That’s f*cking mental"
