The fourth most popular radio station for cheats was Heart, chosen by 10% of respondents, and Smooth was fifth (9%).
In sixth place was Magic with 8% of those polled, Capital was seventh (7%), Radio 1 was eighth (6%), Virgin was ninth (5%) and Radio 2 came in tenth (4%).
Radio 2 is the UK’s most popular radio station with Chris Evans’ Radio 2 breakfast show its top show with 9 million listeners.
IllicitEncounters.com Christian Grant said:
“This new research shows that it is the most rich, powerful and influential people in the UK who are most likely to cheat. Lots of those people waking up to the Today programme are doing it in bed with their lover rather than their spouse. Classic FM also has an affluent, middle aged audience which explains why it featured so highly in the survey.”
“Radio 2 is the home of Steve Wright’s Sunday Love Songs – which celebrates marriage like no other show. It has a very middle-of-the-road audience who seem to be more happy with their lot and are less inclined to stray.”

I love combining sex with Radio 4’s Today show in the mornings, according to serial mistress Gweneth Lee
Serial mistress Gweneth Lee, 46, is one of the 25% of adulterers in the survey who chose Radio 4 as her favourite station and the Today programme as her top show.
Lee, a business consultant from Chelsea, West London, who has had affairs with more than 100 married men through the dating site IllicitEncounters.com, said:
“Like most members of the business and political communities, I like to get up to the Today programme just to get a grip on what is happening in the news. I often do this when I have been on a date with one of my married lovers and we are waking up in a hotel room. The best time for sex is during the mega dull Thought For The Day just before the 8am news. That way, you are done and dusted before the main political interview of the day at 8.10am.”
“It’s a great way to start the day. The sex gives you lots of zip and Radio 4 ensures you are totally on top of the news.”
