Kent's love-rat hubs - where the highest number of people have extramarital affairs - have been revealed.
Research reveals Gravesend tops the new UK Infidelity Index listing the towns where the highest percentage of the population are cheating on their partners.
The town is officially the county's most promiscuous, ranking sixth on the national list with 784 of the town's 55,467 residents engaging in affairs.
The Infidelity Index website lists the number of people having or actively seeking affairs using dating website Illicit Encounters in UK towns with populations of more than 50,000.
This includes Kent's largest towns, with Ashford, Maidstone, Chatham, Folkestone, Tunbridge Wells and Gillingham all featuring.
Ashford comes 14th on the website's list thanks to 793 unfaithful individuals.
Gillingham cemented its place in the bottom half of the league table at 75th, with 659 people choosing to play away.
Maidstone was ranked 41st with 912 affairs, Chatham came in at 59th with 553 and Folkestone shared 60th spot with Tunbridge Wells, recording 367 and 412 affairs respectively.
The city of Canterbury does not make the list of towns, but is said to have 7,624 people having affairs.
The Berkshire satellite town of Maidenhead topped the table with 1,316 people having affairs.
The seaside resort of Bournemouth achieved the respectable title of the UK's most faithful town, with only 0.04 percent of its population having affairs - a fact the website puts down to the town's ageing population.
