Apparently Irish people tend to stray when the weather is warmer, making July the top month for affairs.

The affairs dating site, Illicit.com, report that activity is 70 per cent higher than normal today, while it's up 25 per cent for the first three weeks of July.

A spokesman for the site, Christian Grant, said: "We are experiencing the busiest three weeks for cheating as we head towards the big summer getaway.

In a dark and depressing reveal, he added: "Adulterers are grabbing one last chance to have a bit of fun before they head off for two weeks away with their families."

Apparently cheating "peaks this Friday when those having affairs can excuse their absence from home by saying they are catching up with colleagues before holidays."

According to Grant, "The sun makes us more optimistic and open for adventure. We are all wearing a lot less too, and that makes people more likely to cheat."

Last month - dubbed Flaming June - was the second busiest month for cheating, September comes in third when cheaters get together after the family holiday.

January is the fourth most popular month for affairs after Christmas spent with the family.

April is the least likely month for affairs.
