London: Disgraced golfer Tiger Woods has been voted the worst love rat of this century in a poll.

Woods, who recently divorced Elin Nordegren after a string of affairs, topped a poll of famous cheats with 30 per cent of women`s votes, reports News of the World.

England striker Wayne Rooney, who romped with a hooker while Coleen was pregnant, came second with 23 per cent and Ashley Cole was third with 15 per cent.

Boyzone singer Ronan Keating was fifth-with nearly a third voting him most unexpected love rat.

It`s not just celebs at it-nearly half of men surveyed admitted they would stray if they were certain not to get caught, and 28 per cent of women said they``d do it, too.

The poll, by extra-marital dating agency Illicit Encounters, revealed more than two-thirds have at least one friend who``s cheated and a quarter have helped hide a pal``s affair.

Just nine per cent of men and six per cent of women say they could forgive a straying lover.

Rosie Freeman-Jones of Illicit Encounters said: "Celebrities have more opportunity but ordinary people have had affairs since the dawn of time."
