Jilted lovers in Newcastle stalk their former partners most - according to the poll of 1,700 people - with 72 percent there owning up to it, followed by Liverpool and London each with 68 percent. 

Asked why they were searching for info about an ex 57 percent said it was curiosity with 21 percent admitting jealousy.

My heart goes out to all those bunnies which are getting digitally boiled.

Steffen Ruehl, of yasni.co.uk which carried out the research said: "Curiosity is an interesting thing, it is human nature to investigate. 

"It can make people search for people they may dislike, or people they have had personal relationships with in the past." 

"The only way to ensure people do not access personal information about your life is to ensure that social network profiles are set to private and that any information about yourself online is hidden or deleted."

1. Newcastle – 72%
2. Liverpool – 68%
