These are the most adulterous professions

Bankers don't have the best reputation - and this new survey is unlikely to help.

Data from Illicit Encounters, the dating site for married people, reveals that those working in financial services are wildly over-represented among their user base.

The site lists 20 occupations for users signing up to the service to choose from - and 18 per cent are bankers. They report numbers are growing with an 8 per cent increase in sign-ups from those in the financial services since January 2015.
