Hundreds of married people in Northamptonshire are having affairs, according to an internet dating site.

The figures were released by IllicitEncounters.com, the country’s largest married dating site, and shows the number of people having affairs in every area in the UK.

In this area, the website claims there are 542 people in Kettering having an affair, 552 people in Rushden, 389 people in Corby, and a whopping 895 people in Wellingborough.

In contrast, there were just 701 people having an affair in Northampton, according to IllicitEncounters.com.

Claire Page, from the site, said: “It’s no wonder the traffic to the site is so high.

“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?”

Psychologist Lucy Redford said: “There are many reasons people have affairs – feelings of frustration, isolation and loneliness can be contributing factors as well as the limited options in marriage.”
