But even Boris cannot match the Brexit Party’s leader Nigel Farage in terms of popularity.

Farage was picked by 32% of adulterers when asked who would make the best Prime Minister, followed by Boris on 24%, Michael Gove on 11% and Jeremy Hunt in fourth place on 10%. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came bottom with just 1% of the vote.

The results were revealed as new figures showed a surge in adultery since the UK voted to leave Europe three years ago.

IllicitEncounters, with the highest number of members in the UK, has welcomed 42,000 new members alone since the referendum vote – similar to the number of new members the Tory Party has attracted over the same period.

Both Boris and Farage have split with their wives since the Brexit vote. And the success of adulterous politicians is seen as giving “permission to cheat” to adulterers who view being unfaithful as no barrier to career advancement.

Jessica Leoni, relationship expert for, said: “Obviously adulterers back Boris in a straight fight with Jeremy Hunt – they want one of their own in Number 10!

“No surprise that he is more popular with men than women. Women are going to look on him less favourably because of his past affairs.

“Boris is still the overwhelming favourite to win the contest despite the chaos in his private life.

“If the nation is prepared to turn a blind eye to Boris being unfaithful, then there is a feeling that cheating will be normalised amongst the general population, too. 

“Boris’s election will give adulterers the permission to cheat.

 “We are increasingly sharing similar attitudes to the French who expect their politicians to be unfaithful and have elected one adulterer after another to be President.

“It shows we are all growing up about sex and not being slaves to fidelity.”
