The results are from a new survey by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, which has been carried out to coincide with the return of Love Island, which returned to screens on Monday.

It found that the main reason people cheat when they are away is because they were unlikely to get caught - chosen by 42% of women and 39% of men.

Other reasons for cheating included sun being an aphrodisiac (39% of women and 36% of men), my mates were doing it (32% of women and 34% of men), I drank too much (28% of women and 30% of men) and an opportunity came up and I thought I would go for it (29% of women and 27% of men).

Only 17% of women and 13% of men have regretted having a holiday fling.

And even fewer have been caught out by their partners - just 14% of women and 12% of men said their holiday flings had been discovered.

Two-thirds of women who have had holiday flings (63%) said they would do it again along with 59% of men.

Almost all holiday flings happen when people are away with friends rather than their partners.

One in six women (16%) and 14% of men have had flings at home while their partners were partying abroad with friends - so it is not just holidaymakers who are cheating.

IllicitEncounters.com Jessica Leoni said: “The sun is shining and we are about to enter peak cheating season with so many of us heading abroad for some fun.

“Many people who wouldn’t dream of cheating on their partners at home suddenly feel this compulsion to cheat when they go away with their mates.

“They know that what goes on tour, stays on tour and they are very unlikely to get caught out by their partner.”
