Bedford topped the chart, followed by Aberdeen, Nottingham, Birmingham and Manchester and then Doncaster, suggesting that these towns and cities had the highest percentage of their adult population keen to explore ways of making extra money .

London is positioned in the middle of the ranking as the 16th most money-driven city in the country, while Plymouth, Edinburgh, Southampton, Cardiff and Milton Keynes share the bottom of the list as the least money-driven cities in the UK.

Lisa Caplan, head of financial advice, Nutmeg, said: “At a time when the gig economy and side-hustles are on the rise in the UK, it’s interesting to see those cities where people are looking to supplement their income.

“Whether it’s making money online, tips for saving more or getting started with investing – people are looking to make their money go a little further.”
