Manchester’s most adulterous places named – and the town where spouses should keep a close eye on other halves


An ‘index of infidelity’ has highlighted the UK’s most adulterous towns – and one particular spot in Greater Manchester has come out on top of the entire list.

Illicit Encounters – an online dating site for married men and women – says that 20,000 people use its services to cheat on their partner every week. New figures released by the site this week have identified that people in Altrincham are more likely to cheat on their partner than residents in any other town in Britain.

Using member’s location data against each town’s adult population, the site has compiled a list of the most adulterous places in the country. Illicit Encounters says that 2,994 people in Altrincham alone are members – working out as 5.71% of the town’s population, or around one in 18.

After Altrincham, Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire has the highest ratio of adulterers (5.48% of the population). Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire (5.43%), Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire (4.54%), and Motherwell in Scotland (4.45%) round up the top five of the UK’s most adulterous towns.

Swinton was the second most adulterous town in Greater Manchester on the list, with 665 members accounting for 2.62% of the town’s population. Rounding out the rest of the top five in the city-region were Stretford with 533 members (1.99%), Denton with 688 members (1.88%) and Middleton with 762 members (1.77%).

According to the statistics, Chester has the second highest ratio of adulterers, followed by Brighton and Hove, Nottingham and Lichfield. Manchester is the 12th most adulterous city, with 27,224 members, or 6.68% of the population.

The figures are revealed after Only Fans model Amy Kupps – who says she only dates married men and receives up to £40,000 in gifts from her lovers each month – shared her secrets of how to catch a cheating spouse.

The 32-year-old former teacher, who says “you only have yourself to blame” if your partner is cheating, warned people to be on the lookout for signs including a hidden work phone or a new credit card.

She said the first lie to a cheater will tell their partner is that they’re “meeting up with a friend for a quick drink”. She said: “They’ll tell their wives not to wait up all night waiting for them.”

Since launching almost 20 years ago, Illicit Encounters said that more than 1.1 million people across the UK have signed up to meet someone on the site for “the occasional bit of flirtatious chat, a regular coffee date, or a full-blown affair”.
