A new cheating map reveals 2,941 people are having affairs in Preston
Adultery has risen by more than 2% in Preston in the last year.
A new cheating map reveals 2,941 people in the city are having an affair - up from 2,716 last year.
The rise was due to the end of pandemic restrictions and people unhappy with their partners during lockdown seeking affairs as the country returns to normal.
IllicitEncounters.com spokeswoman Jessica Leoni said: “We have seen a rise in cheating over the last year in Preston, particularly since the start of autumn with almost all adults double jabbed.
“Record numbers of people came back from their summer holidays miserable and looking for excitement after 18 months of being bored and stuck at home with their partners.
“We have enjoyed the busiest year in our history with women in particular looking to start afresh and joining in unprecedented numbers.
“The cheating surge will continue as more of us return to the office in the run-up to Christmas. Adulterers often use work as a way to cover up their affair.”
The figures are based on IllicitEncounters’ own extensive data on the numbers of Britons cheating.
