New research suggests adulterers tend to be healthier than those that remain faithful to their partners.

Statistics from the UK’s largest extra-marital dating site IllicitEncounters.com reveal that the healthier you are the more likely you are to have an affair.

The married affairs site screened over 500,000 of its member’s profiles and discovered that 88% of affair seekers don’t smoke and 25% don’t drink, with another 68% describing themselves as only light or social drinkers.

The research also discovered that 39% of members described their body shape as 'Slim' or 'Athletic'.

Only 8% of the surveyed described themselves as 'Cuddly' or 'Very Cuddly'...

A study in the Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy indicated that 60% of men and 45% of women will at some point partake in extra-marital sex – these findings can link the type of person that will cheat with their general health and physical appearance.

Luke, a member of the site, said: "The general consensus is that someone who cheats is going to be a philandering loser the likes of what you would see on Jeremy Kyle. 

"Well, I can assure you I’m quite the opposite. I don’t smoke, I rarely drink, I like to keep in shape by working out on a regular basis. I guess – I need to get my kicks from somewhere, having a secret affair is what exhilarates me the most – it’s a high you can’t experience anywhere else in life."

Claire Page, a spokesperson for the site, said: "Body image and confidence are interlinked; attractive people tend to embody a high level of self-confidence and are therefore more likely to be flirty and forward.

"It’s evident that the calibre of people who choose to have an affair is high, I see good-looking and successful people sign up daily. Those of us that choose infidelity, tend to have a good exterior, happy life, happy wife - that sort of thing, an affair is merely an additional enhancement to an already fruitful livelihood.

"It is only natural that people who work hard to keep in shape and remain healthy will also work hard to indulge in their sexual desires. I have found that members on the site associate the idea of having an illicit encounter as sexy – so surely it will only be sexy people that will seek an extra-marital relationship!"
