British people overestimate both the number of EU citizens living in the UK, and how much we contribute to the EU budget.

This is according to research by Ipsos-MORI, who found that one in seven people (15 per cent) believe at least one euro myth.

As the referendum approaches (it's 23 June, don't forget), you may feel hideously ill-equipped to answer the question as to whether the UK should 'Remain' in or 'Leave' the European Union.

Don't worry - you're definitely not alone.

Take the quiz, below and let us know how you get on in the comments:
