THE top spots for an affair in the UK have been revealed in a new love map.
Brits looking to cheat on their partners seem most likely to live in a northern metropolis.
Salford and Manchester seem to be the places where people in love are most likely to be misled.
The towns are just over ten kilometers apart – but apparently have the highest number of love rats in the UK.
Norwich and Southampton residents have also been accused of having wandering eyes.
The data comes from dating app Ashley Madison, which caters to those looking to gamble behind their partner’s back.
It shows that Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and Leeds are also popular haunts for those already taken.
Liverpool, London and Cardiff also made the list, according to the study by the dating site for married couples.
Relationship expert Lucy Beresford says it’s not surprising that people are turning to forbidden romance in the wake of the pandemic.
She said: “People want to make up for lost time and prioritize their personal fulfillment.
“For some, this means having sex with an affair partner after feeling let down by the lack of sex in their marriage.
“And for others, it will be about camaraderie and feeling that their emotional needs are finally being met.
“As more people realize that an affair boosts their spirits and well-being, it’s clear that many cities across the UK will be enjoying a summer of love.”
A previous poll by Ashley Madison found that 42 percent of married people say they never have sex with their spouse, and one in 10 has sex only once a year.
Christoph Kraemer, the site’s Europe director, believes the research shows a “non-monogamous movement” is sweeping through the UK.
He said: “Whether it’s an agreed relationship structure or something in secret, Britons are looking for more than what traditional monogamy has to offer.
“Over 80 percent of our members view an affair as a form of self-care.
“I expect there will be a sharp drop in demand for therapy sessions this summer, particularly in the top 20 adultery cities, as many like-minded individuals gather across the country.”
Luton, Coventry and Aberdeen appeared on the list of unlucky places to be in love – while Belfast and Leicester also made the cut.
