New research has revealed the best day of the year to be born if you want to be successful, and it's good news for September babies.

A new study by personal finance experts Ocean Finance has revealed the best day to be born for success is September 6th.

They analysed 650 successful Brits, factoring in the most prestigious accomplishments in various fields from politics to science, acting to Olympians and beyond.

The study found that 13 per cent of the most successful of the 650 were born in September, with 11 per cent born in March and 10 per cent in May.
