Manchester named cheating capital of UK as 55% of women saying they would travel 30 miles for affair

Lock up your husbands, and wives for that matter, as Manchester has been named the cheating capital of the UK by an extramarital dating site.

The city topped the table when it comes to the number of people who fancy a bit on the side, regardless of the ring on their finger, says new research from www.gleeden.com. 

Dirty antics behind closed doors meant the city came first ahead of Bristol, Liverpool, London and Leeds.

A filth peddler from the saucy site said: “Those down-to-earth Mancunians have got a reputation as straight-talking Northerners who’re not shy, and that obviously includes asking for what they want when it comes to sex.”

The sordid study also revealed the distance some were willing to go to do the dirty on their partner, with 14% of men and women said they’d travel 200 miles to have an affair, and 3% of men and 5% of women saying they’d go even further – Quite a trip to have it away.

More than half of the keen bean men who use the site claim they would travel more than 60 miles for some extra marital nookie, whereas only a lowly 26% of women would do the same.

However 55% of women said they would go 30 miles to cheat on their other halves, whereas only 31% of guys asked would – a bit too close to home perhaps. 

In the past, Manchester hasn’t always had the whitest of white reputations when it comes to staying faithful.

The city has produced cheaters like Kym Marsh who famously got it behind the back of fellow soap star boyfriend Jamie Lomas.

Max George from the Wanted did the dirty on stunner Michelle Keegan for another lady.

And of course a whole host of Manchester United and Manchester City players are guilty for leaving their WAGS for someone new, the most infamous offenders being Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney.
