Two-timers? It's in the eyes

You can't hide your lying eyes: scientists have revealed that women can judge whether a man is likely to be unfaithful just by looking at his face - but men are less able to spot a cheating woman.

University of Western Australia researchers took 1,500 people and showed them pictures of 189 Caucasian adults (101 men and 88 women), and asked them if they had been unfaithful.

Respondents were then asked to rank these faces on a scale of one to 10, where one is "not at all likely to be unfaithful" and 10 is "extremely likely" to play the field.

The result, published in the journal Royal Society Open Science, was that "both men and women were accurate in assessing men's, but not women's likelihood to cheat and poach."
