The words British people spell incorrectly most often

Mine's 'Independnet'.

We all have regular typos (I know it's 'Independent'), or words that we just can't seem to get correct.

A study of 2,000 adults in 2014 provided researchers with a list of the top 50 words that Brits spell incorrectly.

The highest ranking words were 'embarrassment', 'occasionally' and 'necessary', as found by the study commissioned by Nick Jr. UK.
