More than 430 people in Doncaster are cheating on their partner, according to a new survey.
And the number of people having affairs in the town is up on last year, according to the UK Infidelity Index.
Last year figures revealed there were 319 people cheating on their spouses - but this year the figure has rocketed to 432. But the figures show Doncaster is actually one of the most faithful places in the UK, with just 0.39% of the town’s population cheating, ranked 135 out of 140 UK postcode areas.
Beeston was ranked as 2015’s most adulterous town in the UK, according to the interactive website www.infidelityindex.co.uk.
The 2015 Index has been released today by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s largest married dating site and shows the number of people having affairs in every area in the UK.
The Index maps IllicitEnounters’ members across the UK giving a very true reflection of where the most and least affairs are taking place.
Beeston is the most unfaithful with 2.54% of the population of the town having an affair.
Livingston is the most adulterous town in Scotland and second most adulterous town in the UK with 2.03% of the population straying, while Craigavon in Northern Ireland is the most faithful with only 0.04% of the population having affairs.
“It’s no wonder the traffic to the site is so high.” Claire Page of IllicitEncounters.com said.
“People are dying to see how many people are having an affair on their street, village or town - who wouldn’t want to know if they live in a cheating hotspot? Thousands of people are checking the Illicit Index to see how many people in their area are having affairs. I think it’s great that Beeston is the most unfaithful town of 2015. People think you’d get more life in a graveyard than in Beeston but the Illicit Index proves one thing: it’s always the quiet ones!”
“There are many reasons people have affairs in small towns like Beeston – feelings of frustration, isolation and loneliness can be contributing factors as well as the limited options in marriage.” psychologist Lucy Redford said, “Discretion is usually the main priority in extra-marital affairs. If secrecy wasn’t important, the individual would seek a divorce before an affair. Oftentimes when passion has left a relationship, but people don’t want to fracture their home status or disrupt a family unit, and they’re not willing to compromise their sex lives, an affair becomes tempting for their situation.”
