Schoolgirl crushes on teachers are generally innocent, dreamy events to be discussed with your best friend or indeed your secret diary. But occasionally, they can spiral out of control and turn into dangerous liaisons.

We all know schoolgirl crushes are common. When you have 600 girls stuck in school all day with nothing to distract them, you can be sure a young male teacher will make waves. Big waves.

But I was still taken aback when I Googled 'crush on a teacher' and over 46 million results popped up. There is even a whole Wikihow page on how to make your teacher have a crush on you.
