The institute for public research (IPPR) estimates that the total figure for British expat now stand at 5.5 million worldwide. These range from young workers seeking fortunes elsewhere to older people who have retired to sunnier destinations.

Spain and Australia are the most popular destinations. Increasing numbers are now also making their way to some of the richer Asian economies including china, as well as the United Arab Emirates.

The study, which is the first major attempt to put a figure on the amount of British citizens who live overseas, found that the number doubled from 53,000 in 2001 to 107,000 in 2006.

Those most likely to depart are young workers without families along with those seeking to retire, according to the IPPR which expects more immigration in the coming years.
