London is the ninth most adulterous city in the world

Isabelle Aron

Londoners, hang your head in shame, because apparently we're all a bunch of cheating scoundrels. A group of computer whizzes have hacked into the dating website Ashley Madison to find out more about the kind of people using the site, which specialises in 'casual encounters, married dating, discreet encounters and extramarital affairs'. But if you're one of the thousands of Londoners with an account, you probably already knew that. After some hi-tech digging, the hackers have revealed the top 25 cities where people have signed up to the site and London has just scraped into the top ten, coming in at number nine with 179,129 accounts. The frisky folks in São Paulo came in at number one, followed by New York in second place and Sydney picking up the number three spot.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, our City Living Survey also shows that even though 39 percent of Londoners are single, there's a one-in-four chance that you'll be chatted up by someone in a relationship. Our 2015 Dating Survey also found that 17 percent of respondents said they had dated someone who was married. Come on London, try keeping it in your pants every once in a while.
