The parts of Cornwall with the highest pulling power are revealed.

An interactive map of singletons reveals how many people are unmarried in the Duchy.

In places like Newquay, Penzance, Falmouth and Penryn it is more than a third.

The highest number of unmarried women can be found around Padstow, Truro, Roche and St Agnes.

While single men are more likely to be found around the Lizard, Callington and Bude.

Across the country the number of people who are unmarried has risen by three million in a decade, as more of us choose to live on our own.

The figures come from the Office for National Statistics. A spokesperson said: "The rise in the single population could be the result of a number of factors, including the proportional decline in marriage since the 1970s and the increased social acceptability of remaining single or cohabiting (either never marrying or not re-marrying following divorce or widowhood)."

Figures for the UK show that people are more likely to be divorced if they live near the sea. The ONS said: "Higher levels of divorced population may relate to the affordability of housing and living costs in some of these areas resulting in divorced people with reduced economic assets living there.
