If you’re looking for love (or a casual hook up), you’ve got a pretty good chance.

Nearly half of people living in Liverpool – 49.7 per cent – are single, according to Channel 4 data aimed at finding participants for its third series of First Dates.

193,012 singletons are up for grabs in Liverpool, so you’d have difficulty not finding one on a night out in Concert Square.

In the UK, one in three people over the age of 16 are without a bae, according to research collected by Channel 4 from the most recent national census.

You’ll probably get lucky in Liverpool

If you want to up your chances, you’d be better off popping over to Manchester, where 55 per cent of their population are single, the highest city in the UK.

Following closely behind Manchester on the list are Oxford, Cambridge, Nottingham, and Brighton and Hove – with relatively similar numbers of unmarried people.

Liverpool’s close behind, so it’s not worth a travel if you’re in search of a date.

The research follows a study showing people who earn less are less likely to marry, and rich people are twice as likely to get married now compared with 15 years ago.

But for students, this probably doesn’t matter – marriage and money are not common things in the typical student lifestyle.
