The Verdict is Out: You CAN Laugh Someone into Bed

* 5 out of 6 women agree that a sense of humour is vital when choosing a lover 

* Men aren’t fussed if a woman is funny, but want women to laugh at their jokes!

* 9 out of 10 women would sleep with someone they found physically attractive, if they could make them laugh

* More than a quarter of women would go home with a man they didn’t even fancy, as long as they were funny

*Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people

The abbreviation LMPO, or laughing my pants off, should be taken more literally than previously considered. Turns out you can laugh someone into bed, actually!

IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, surveyed 600 women and 600 men to find out about what they think when it comes to attraction and humour.

91% of women agree that if they find you physically attractive, if you could make them laugh, they’d go home with you. 

A further 26% said they would sleep with a man who made them laugh, even if they were not that physically attracted to them.

84% of women agree a sense of humour plays a crucial part in choosing a lover.

On the flipside, men aren’t really that bothered about women making jokes – with less than half (48%) stating a woman that’s funny is important to them when looking for a lover.

Having said that, 70% of men agree that they find a woman more attractive if she laughs at their jokes, suggesting that men prefer to have an audience rather than being on the receiving end of a gag. 

The female respondents were also asked to rank certain qualities in order of importance when looking for a lover, ‘good looks’ came on top, followed by ‘sense of humour’ and ‘confidence’.

Surprisingly ‘intelligence’ didn’t score very high, coming in at fourth place. Perhaps, reason being, if somebody is funny they are already presumed to be more intelligent. Researchers in Austria previously uncovered that the funnier you are the higher your IQ is compared to less comical people, particularly if the humor is dark*, stating that ‘Humour processing is a complex information processing task that is dependent on cognitive and emotional aspects…’ Evidently wit and intellect go hand in hand.

Turns out money doesn’t talk, as women voted ‘wealth’ as the least important quality when looking for a lover.

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said “All jokes aside, laughter naturally creates chemistry with the opposite sex. There’s nothing like a rush of endorphins and oxytocin, rewarding the brain and making you feel more connected to somebody. After all, isn’t it a connection that we crave? Making us feel more bonded to someone, and thus more attracted to them.

It’s no surprise that men prefer to take on the role of a jester, rather than an audience. Good news for women though – just act like a giggling cackle of hyenas and you’re bound to snatch your man-prey!”

It turns out brunettes have more fun than blondes

* A shocking 1 in 3 women who cheat are brunettes
* 2 in 5 men agree brunettes make the best lovers
* Ironically, more than half of men think that blondes are the most attractive, compared to any other hair colour
* Study conducted by IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading dating site for married people

Contrary to popular belief, it’s really brunettes that have more fun, not blondes!

Out of a sample of 2000 female users on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating site for married people, more brunettes than any other hair colour are looking to cheat!

33% of women in the sample are naturally brunette.

Compared to 28% who are blonde, followed by 25% with black hair, and 9% with grey hair.

Red heads are the most faithful with only 5% looking to have an affair.

The study also found that, from a sample of 200 women, 19% admit to dying their natural hair colour blonde, compared to just 15% of women dying their hair any other colour, suggesting that women believe blonde is desirable. Some iconic blondes include Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly.

They’re not wrong, out of 800 men surveyed, more than half of men (51%) find blondes to be the most attractive.

Red heads came in second most attractive, with 18%, followed by women with naturally black hair with 15%.

Brunettes didn’t even make the top three, landing in fourth place with 14%, followed by women with grey hair (2%).

Despite being less attracted to brunettes, a whopping 41% believe brunettes are better in bed than any other hair colour. 

Reasons given for this were that brunettes are more ‘adventurous’, and ‘open minded’ in between the sheets. Famous brunettes include Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Hurley, and Kate Middleton – The Duchess of Cambridge . 

Blondes come in at 26%, with men stating that blondes are ‘enthusiastic’, and ‘eager to please’. Famous blondes include Scarlett Johansson, Carey Mulligan, and Kate Winslet.

Women with black hair come in at 18%, and are deemed to be ‘dominant’, and ‘kinky’. Famous celebrities with black hair include Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Connelly and Rihanna.

Followed by red heads (12%), with whom getting intimate is described as ‘passionate’ and ‘sensual’. Famous redheads include Julianne Moore, Emma Stone, and Nicole Kidman. 

Bad news for silver vixens, as grey haired women rank last at only 3%, with men describing them as ‘experienced’, but ‘demanding’. Famous grey haired women include Meryl Streep, Nichelle Nichols, and Jamie Lee Curtis.

62% of men said they have a preference of hair colour, however as much as 37% said they tend to date someone that isn’t their type when it comes to this preference.

Freddie, a male member using the site said “I prefer blondes, but I always seem to end up with a brunette. I’m physically more attracted to a blonde, but the connection always feels a bit superficial. Brunettes have more substance, better chat, and keep me more on my toes. Looks can only get you so far.”

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “Brunettes everywhere are having the last laugh! Not only are they killing it in the bedroom, men agree that brunettes are adventurous and open minded, two qualities that support evidence that more brunettes have affairs than any other hair colour. 

No doubt blondes get more attention, as over half of men find them to be the most attractive. Maybe this fact contributes to them making less exciting lovers, if blondes expect men to fancy them, perhaps they don’t bother so much with flirting, which is needed to let sparks fly, and in order to create a build up to mindblowing sex!

Shame that silver beauties are judged so harshly. If a grey haired lady wants to appease a man, it may be worth getting the hair dye out – the question is, do you opt for bleach, or colour? ”

Beware of Red Tuesday – top day of the year to be dumped is today


* The Tuesday before Valentine’s day is the day you’re most likely to get dumped – compared to any other day of the year!
* 36% of people have broken up with their partner in the week leading up to Valentine’s Day
* 2 out of 3 of those broke up with their partner on Red Tuesda
* The number one most popular way to dump someone is by text!
* Results come from new survey by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people


It’s the week of love, but not for everyone.

Beware, as Red Tuesday, only six days before Valentine’s day – is the day you’re most likely to get dumped! As if this year couldn’t get any worse.

36% of people have broken up with their significant other in the week leading up to Valentine’s day. A staggering 2 out of 3 of those have ditched their partners on Red Tuesday (67%).

Results come from a new survey of 2000 members of IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people.

A further 28% ended things in the week leading up to the big day.

5% actually called it quits on Valentines day itself – savage. 

Whilst some of us are preparing gifts and declarations of love – others are scheming on how to escape their relationships.

The most popular way to throw in the towel was by text message 32%, followed by a phone call 24%. 

Only 20% of people broke the news to their partners in person.

A whopping 16% ditch their partner via social media, turns out you only really need 140 characters to break someone’s heart.

6% of people didn’t even deliver the news themselves. Opting instead to get a friend or relative to do it on their behalf – don’t shoot the messenger.

Best to avoid the postman today, as a shocking 2% send a letter to break the news that they no longer want to be together.

Covid-19 is going to make this year’s Red Tuesday that much worse, with stay at home orders, couples who live together will struggle to move on. 

No doubt the pandemic has had an impact on many relationship breakdowns in the course of the last year, with a previous poll of 1500 married affair-seekers, indicating 82% agree their relationship with their spouse has suffered due to the covid restrictions.*


Jessica Leoni, sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said ‘Ohh, he did you dirty girl! What a way to seal the deal. 

As many of us revel in the romance of the week ahead, today tons of people are going to be trying to mend their broken hearts, giving a whole new meaning to lovesick.

Sometimes you’ve got to be cruel to be kind. If people are dishing out break-ups just before Valentines day, it’s best to leave the table gracefully. 

Red Tuesday is spurred on by guilt, fear, and perhaps a little pity for the other half. If you’re not quite as loved up as you think you should be, leading up to the most romantic day of the year, then there’s no surprise why you might want to cut ties. 

My advice to the jilted lovers, don’t be too hard on yourself. Valentines day puts a lot of pressure on couples, and if your relationship is already on the rocks, V-day is only going to rock the boat.”


Method of breaking up

Text Message 32%
Phone call 24%
In person 20%
Via social media 16%
Through a friend or family member 6%
By post 2%

The ideal number of sexual partners has been revealed, and 13 is the magic number

* Men and women both agree that 13 is the optimal number of people you should sleep with!
* 18 partners and over, is when someone’s past sexual escapades become a turn off
* 2 out of 3 women lie about their magic number, compared to only 1 out of 8 men
*  Only 31% of us actually want to know about our partners sexual history
* Results come from new survey by IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

For those of you who thought 13 was an unlucky number, turns out it isn’t! 

Men and women agree that 13 is the ideal number of sexual partners one should have.

IllicitEncounters.com surveyed 1000 men and 1000 women to find out how many sexual partners they’d want their new lover to have. With over half indicating 13 as the optimal number (52%).

67% of women lie about their magic number compared to a mere 13% of men. It could be that women are more cautious in sharing their intimate exploits to appear more conservative to the opposite sex.

73% of the respondents agreed that 18 or more is the number of sexual partners somebody has had, when they become a turn off. A warning sign that perhaps someone is prone to bed-hopping and difficult to please.

A whopping 77% of men said that they would sleep with someone on the first date if there was chemistry, compared to only 39% of women, it seems women are much more selective, and likely to hold out if they are interested in a potential match.

Interesting to note, more men (59%) then women (46%) find that a high number of sexual partners makes someone less desirable, suggesting there is still a social stigma regarding perceptions of promiscuity between genders.

Only a total of 31% of men and women want to know their partner’s sexual history, indicating that people would rather not know then have to deal with their feelings about the matter, especially if they do not like the answer.

Members of IllicitEncounters.com comment below:

Sofia, 33, London
 “When a man has a long list of sexual encounters it’s a red flag. I’d be wary that he’s a womaniser, and would not trust his intentions.”

Henry, 56, Devon
“I think variety in partners teaches you a lot about love making. Taking you on an adventure, and giving you experience – a perfect combination for incredible sex.”

Grace, 40, Surrey
“I’d feel awkward sleeping with a man who has had less partners than me. I’d be worried that they don’t know what they’re doing.”

Sonia, 38, Bristol
 “There’s nothing sexy about a man having casual sex. It leads me to believe they value quantity over quality.”

Hayley, 46, Suffolk
“As long as you’re practising safe sex, boundaries are set and expectations are met – then why not?”

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com said “A high number of sexual partners is a turn off for many. Nobody wants to be just another notch on the bedpost. 

Equally, you don’t want to date someone who’s barely had any experience, it’s a recipe for an awkward fumble.

13 partners is the ideal number – and guarantees that somebody is going to be experienced, adventurous, and open minded inbetween the sheets.”

If Your Partner Spends Big This Christmas, They Could Be Cheating On You

 * 81% of adulterers admit to spending big on Christmas
* Jewellery is the number one gift for women
* Top gift for men are new gadgets or tech
* Results come from recent survey of 600 adulterers on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading married-dating website
 
Want to know if your husbands been naughty or nice this year? You can tell by what present they give you this Christmas. The more lavish the gift, the higher the chances are they’re cheating on you!
 
A staggering 81% of cheaters admit to spending big on Christmas because they feel guilty for their affair. Only 9% of adulterers go all out on expensive gifts because they enjoy it. 
 
A recent survey conducted with 600 members of married-dating website IllicitEncounters.com has revealed the most popular gifts bought by cheaters this festive season.
 
Jewellery (33%) topped the list of most popular items bought by cheating husbands, followed by gadgets/tech (19%), and fragrances (15%).
 
Cheating wives favoured new gadgets/tech, with 37% getting their spouse a new tech toy. Designer brand underwear also made the list with 23% indicating they bought their husbands posh briefs, followed by fragrances (13%).
 
The average price spent on spouses by love rats in 2020 is £625. 

Men (6%) are more likely than women (1%) to spend under £100 on their spouse this Christmas.

Alexander, a member using IllicitEncounters.com said ‘I love my wife, I’m just not in love with her anymore. She is a wonderful partner and a fantastic mum, and I often feel a guilt-trip coming on for having an affair. I’ve spent over a grand on her alone this Christmas – as a token of my affection – to show my appreciation for the great job she does for our family. Perhaps it does ease the guilt a little.’

Helen, another member on the site said ‘I’m getting my fella the playstation 5. Honestly, it isn’t even guilt for me – we do alright financially, and I want to give him a nice present. With him spending more time playing video games, it’ll also be easier for me to sneak away and see my lover. Kill two birds with one stone, merry christmas!’

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Jessica Leoni explains:

‘It seems guilty pockets are pretty deep! With adulterers spending in excess of £600 to quell their sins. I’d be pretty worried if I was presented with the new Playstation 5 or the latest iPhone 12 this year as gadgets/tech both make it in the top 2 for men and women.

Naturally cheats spend big during Christmas from adulterous guilt – it’s a sure fire way to rid those guilty feelings.’

* A survey of 600 adulterers found that 69% have plans to meet their mistress/histress on Unfaithful Friday
 
Christmas is a time for celebration, and adulterers join the party by setting an annual date to toast Cheat-mas with their affair partners. This year ‘Unfaithful Friday’ falls on the 18th of December, when adulterers plan to have their last illicit encounter of 2020 with their extramarital lover.

The week of Unfaithful Friday see’s 30% more activity on IllicitEncounters.com, the UK’s leading married dating site, than any other week in November and December, as married men and women look for a last-minute romp before they return to their otherwise dull marriage.

The winter break is torturous, I’m so busy decorating the house, shopping for presents, trying to make everything fun for everyone, that there’s very little fun left for me. Giving myself a much needed break before the chaos, makes it all a lot easier to cope.’
 
Leo, another member using the site said ‘I’ve been having an affair with an extraordinary woman for 6 years. Some time ago we started having our own festive fun in the week leading up to Christmas. Wine, food, swapping gifts, it’s become tradition.’

Of course crimbo cheats are at it right now, they need to catch a break. I need a break from my family, and they haven’t even arrived yet. We can all relate. I hope Cheat-mas brings everyone some much needed Christmas cheer.’

Londoners Top Annual Poll of UK and Ireland’s Best (and Worst) Lovers

Londoners Top Annual Poll of UK and Ireland’s Best (and Worst) Lovers

* UK and Ireland’s best and worst lovers revealed in annual survey
* Londoners most bed-able – winning first place for both men and women
* Manchester crowned second best lovers
* Men would rather avoid Brummies, and women do not fancy getting frisky with Scousers!
* Over half of us agree that ‘confidence’ is the number one factor that determines your sex appeal
* Poll conducted by IlliciEncounters.com, the UK’s leading dating website for married people

IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading affairs dating website, takes you on a city tour like no other, revealing the UK and Ireland’s best and worst lovers.

3000 men and women, split equally, took part in the survey, voting on which city is home to the best sexual partners. Sex and relationships expert for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:

Turns out you really can tell whether someone’s going to be good in bed, and it all comes down to where they are from!

Londoners are officially the best between the sheets for both men (22%) and women (20%). The cultural hub of the United Kingdom, there’s simply something for everyone here. London, notorious for being one of the most romantic cities in the world – evokes sex appeal. It isn’t utterly surprising the public voted Londoners as the best lovers, picture this, Hugh Grant, Jude Law, Emilia Clarke and Kate Moss – all Londoners!

Men voted for Mancs in second place with Manchester gaining 18% of the vote, sexy female celebs from Manchester include Gemma Atkinson, Holliday Grainger, and Agyness Deyn – phwoar!

Newcastle comes in as third best lay (14%) for men, home to the likes of Cheryl Cole, Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby.

Men least enjoy sleeping with Brummies, with Birmingham grasping at a mere 2% of the vote

Women voted for Manchester in second (17%) – home to Jamie Lomas, Marcus Rashford and Oasis.

In second place for women come the Scots with Glasgow gaining 15% of the vote, think James Mccavoy, swoon! 

Seems that women really do like variety in the bedroom, or at least a total change in accent – funny that, considering talking dirty does not rank high for women when it comes to sex appeal (8%).

Women least enjoy sleeping with Scousers with only 3% of the vote going to Liverpool.

Both men (54%) and women (51%)  agree that ‘confidence’ is the number one quality that determines if someone is going to be good in the sack.

Second place for men is ‘dirty talk’ (18%), followed by ‘dressing sexy’ (14%).

Second place for women is ‘foreplay’ (22%), followed by ‘slowing the pace’ (15%).

Disloyal Libra’s are the most likely to have an affair, winning top cheating star sign of 2020, with a whopping 16% of adulterers belonging to this astrological sign.

Two-faced Geminis come in at a close second with 14%, followed by cheating Capricorns third with 12%.

Looking for commitment? Look no further than the steadfast Scorpio, the most faithful star sign of the zodiac with only 3% of Scorpios cheating – they’re a safe bet for monogamy. 

Other star signs less likely to cheat are Aquarius 4% and Sagittarius 4%

Although the archer belongs to one of the most faithful, the same can’t be said for their partners. A further 1200 members were asked what star sign their spouse belonged to, and found that a mammoth 13% of adulterers are married to a Sagittarius. 

Michaela a Libra using the site said “I first cheated on my husband, with a work colleague, at a Christmas party five years ago. It was such a rush, having this dirty little secret.

Nowadays I only cheat with married men – that way you both stand to lose a lot, and are less likely to get caught. I’m never going to leave my husband, but I just can’t help that I am much more adventurous and need more sex then he does.”

Cecilia a Gemini using the site said “I have always felt that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past. Me and my husband both date other people, but we are each other’s primary relationship. We absolutely adore each other, and would never leave our marriage – but we both feel that variety is important in life.”

Sex and relationships expert at IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni said “Infidelity really is written in the stars. 

Libra is the most likely to cheat, not surprising at all. Libras are social butterflies, who dislike being alone. If a Libra is married to someone who isnt always available – it’s only natural they’d be seeking validation and company elsewhere. Gregarious Geminis are similar in that respect, another air sign, Geminis are renowned for having two often contradicting personalities – and although they love companionship, they’re fearful of commitment. 

Don’t want your partner to cheat on you? Marry a Scorpio, the most loyal star sign.

How about the poor Sagittarius’, doing their best to stay faithful, and yet everyone is cheating on them!”

The Strictly Curse Strikes: Public LOVE Ravishing Ranvir

The Strictly Curse Strikes: Public LOVE Ravishing Ranvir

* Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice – most likely pair to have an affair!
* Men find ravishing Ranvir most desirable, Jacquie Smith – not so much
* Women fancy Jamie Laing, over Bill Bailey
* Poll comes from 2000 members on IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating site

Who is next to be struck down by the Strictly curse? The recent survey was conducted with 2000 adulterers on IllicitEncounters.com, the U.K’s leading dating website for married people.

Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:

You heard it from the horse’s mouth! There’s no better judge on who falls under the Strictly curse next, than the cheaters themselves, it takes one to know one.

First place goes to GMB presenter and married mother of two, Ranvir Singh, and dance partner Giovanni Pernice with an overwhelming 40% of the vote. In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, Ranvir denied any strictly curse rumours – it’s safe to say we’re not convinced. The pair’s chemistry on stage is undeniable – that argentinian tango last week, and the near kiss at the end, set pulses racing.

Second place is Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing and dance partner Karen Hauer (29%). Nobody believes Jamie is set to propose to his girlfriend MIC co-star Sophie Habboo, that he shares a flat with.  I’m not buying him and dance partner Karen’s ‘sibling-like’ relationship, the two are overly playful, and playfulness plus adult fun are one and the same. Karen Hauer invited to the Laings for Christmas? More like cheat-mas!

Eastenders’ Maise Smith and dance partner Gorka Márquez make it in the top three with 12%, although rumours of a romance between her and HRVY are ripe – both young and unattached, we think they’d make a cute couple.

The pair least likely to have an affair are comedian Bill Bailey and dance partner Oti Mabuse (2%), great news for their spouses.

The 2000 respondents in the poll, split equally between men and women, were then asked on who is the sexiest out of all the 2020 Strictly contestants. 

In the women’s category, Ranvir Singh (17%) comes in first place as the sexiest Strictly contestant, who is effortlessly taking the country by storm. We simply cannot get enough of ravishing Ranvir.

Second place as voted by men is professional dancer Katya Jones (15%). Katya was famously unfaithful in the 2018 Strictly series, when she shared a passionate kiss with dance partner comedian Seann Walsh on a night out. To rub salt in the wound – the night it happened was Seann’s, then girlfriends, Rebecca Humphries birthday, ouch. Still, our men adore Katya, she’s exciting, rebellious, with a certain je ne sais quoi.

Eastenders fan favourite Maise Smith comes in third place with a respectful 13%.

First place in the men’s category is Jamie Laing with a whopping 23% of the vote. Unsurprising, Jamie Laing is cheeky, charming and has a cracking sense of humour, features women find irresistable.

Second and third place as voted by women are professional dancers Anton du Beke (21%) and Aljaž Skorjanec (13%).

Men find former home secretary and labour MP Jacqui Smith (1%) least sexy. Bless Jacqui, she’s absolutely lovely, but there just isn’t much sex appeal in politics.

Women find comedian Bill Bailey (2%) the least sexy.

UK’s Sexiest Politicians For 2020 Revealed

* Rishi Sunak and Lisa Nandy top annual list of UK’s sexiest politicians
* Boris Johnson no longer found sexy, compared to 2019 when the public voted Boris most bed-able politician
* Conservatives Michael Gove and Theresa May voted as least desirable UK politicians
* Conservatives are the overall sexiest males and Labour are the sexiest females 
* Poll comes from 2000 members on IllicitEncounters.com the UK’s leading married dating site 

Politics has become a bit of a laughing stock in recent times, with nobody quite sure what is going on, one u-turn after another, after another. At least one thing’s for certain and that’s who is crowned sexiest politician in the UK 2020. 

The recent survey was conducted with 2000 adulterers on IllicitEncounters.com, the U.K’s leading dating website for married people. Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com, Jessica Leoni has compiled and commented on the results below:

In the men’s category, Rishi Sunak has been voted the number one sexy politician of the year with over a quarter of the vote (26%). Nicknamed Dishy Rishi for his ongoing financial support of the public and businesses and coming up with novel ideas to kick start the economy. Our Chancellor is confident and decisive which exudes sex appeal, coming in first place puts him in the lead as potential next Prime Minister in our eyes.

Keir Stamer, the leader of the Labour party comes in second place (21%).

Third place goes to Conservative backbencher, Tobias Ellwood (18%). Ex-army captain in the The Royal Green Jackets, he has that military man vibe – strong, powerful and protective. A man in uniform – simply irresistible. Not only that, but he was hailed a hero for his bravery in the 2017 Westminster Bridge terrorist attack.

Conservative’s Dominic Rab comes in 4th place (13%), with rising star James Cleverly, also Conservative, taking the fifth spot (7%).

Lastly, Labour’s Ed Milliband is in 6th place (6%). A familiar face in politics and loser of the 2015 election, the public still appear to have a soft spot for this bacon sandwich munching politician.

In the female category, number one sexiest politician goes to Labour’s Lisa Nandy (24%). She is genuine, kind and sports a girl next door look which men find extremely appealing.

Labour’s Rosena Allin-Khan comes in at a respectable second place (20%). Rosena has won the hearts of the public recently with her work in St Georges Hospital in Tooting, putting in 12 hour shifts since the start of Covid-19, alongside her duties as an MP and shadow minister. 

Liz Kendall, Labour’s recently promoted shadow minister for social care comes in 3rd (18%) Previously linked with dating Taskmaster and Inbetweeners star Greg Davies.

Dawn Butler, a Labour party politician, comes in 4th place (16%), followed by Conservative Ester McVey in the 5th spot (12%).

Nicola Sturgeon, first minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National party makes 6th (4%) sexiest female politician overall. Scotland’s female braveheart, Nicola Sturgeon is a passionate and dedicated leader, caring more about the people than the economy. 

Participants of the survey were asked to vote for their least sexy politicians. Least sexy male politician goes to controversial Conservative Michael Gove (23%), the latest politician to have a puppet designed after them in the satirical show spitting image. Michael Gove contended that he is ‘incredibly flattered’ by his puppet version of himself in a news interview, though we cannot imagine what is so flattering about a face made out of genitals.

Conservative’s Matt Hancock, our Secretary of State for Health and Social Care comes in at second place (20%) for least sexy male politician. With his terrible handling of the coronavirus outbreak, his fanbase has not only diminished but he has become rather disliked, even an NHS executive has called him out saying “I have never seen such an empty vessel as a cabinet minister”.*

In third place comes Jeremy Corbyn (18%) – although his anti-semitic behaviour alone puts him number one in our minds.

Boris Johnson comes in at 4th place (14%).The public have lost confidence in our Prime Minister, after countless u-turns amidst the pandemic. Last year Boris was voted most bedable politician with a whopping 47% of people agreeing, now the UK has done a u-turn on Boris.

Nigel Farage, who has recently relaunched the Brexit party as Reform UK comes in 5th place (13%), followed by Liberal Democrat Tim Farron in 6th place (9%) overall.

In the female category, least sexy politician award goes to Theresa May (30%) – say no more. 

DUP’s Arlene Foster comes in second (22%) and in third (17%) is the shadow chancellor Anneliese Dodds, Rishi she will never be.

4th place (11%) least sexy female politician goes to our Home Secretary, Priti Patel, who famously suggested building an asylum processing centre on Ascension Island, a 9 hour flight away. I’ll just leave this one here to sink in.

5th least sexy female goes to Labour’s Angela Rayner (9%), followed by Diane Abott, also Labour, in 6th place (7%).
