A new survey has found that most affairs start in the workplace between colleagues.
Kristen Stewart worked with Rupert Sanders in the box office hit Snow White and the Huntsman, in which Rupert’s wife, Liberty Ross, also starred.
Cheating allegations came to light after Us Weekly published pictures of the two together cuddling and kissing two days ago, since then Kristen and Rupert have both made public apologies.
IllicitEncounters.com has found that out of the 2.5 million people who cheat in Britain, 39 per cent of women and 31 per cent of men have cheated on their spouse with someone they met at work.
Furthermore, a quarter of married men and a fifth of married women have admitted to flirting with someone at work.
Sixteen per cent of men and 8 per cent of women have admitted that there is a person in work who they can’t help but fancy, but men are less likely to take their flirting any further.
Although men are 8 per cent more likely to flirt than women, women are 8 per cent more likely to actually cheat.
Spokesperson for Illicit Encounters Rosie Freeman-Jones says, “The British population is now more obsessed with work more than we ever used to be, resulting in us spending far more hours at work than we do with our loved ones.
“As technology has progressed it’s meant we are more ‘on call’ for work colleagues and clients out of work hours, in the weekends and even on holiday. Additionally with the recession those with jobs are being stretched and pushed to give more hours.
“Work is the perfect excuse that partner’s cannot quibble with, as to why you’re emailing and texting at this hour and why you were home late. It's not surprising to see that during the stress of the economy Britain has decided to mix business with pleasure.
“However affairs in the workplace are hardly ever a good idea and can lead to a poor working environment, even for those not involved in the Affair.”
This will certainly be true in Kristen’s case, imagine how awkward the press junkets are going to be for Breaking Dawn Part 2!
