East London’s single ladies should swipe out at Pudding Mill Lane on the DLR for a better chance of meeting an eligible bachelor.

A survey by Match.com showed the station had the highest ratio of single men to women on its platforms – with an average of 4.6 guys to every girl.

In sad news for east London single men, the west of the capital proved a hotbed for unattached ladies with Goldhawk Road on the Circle and Hammersmith and City lines the place to go.

Other East End hotspots for single men included Westferry, Devons Road and All Saints stations.

Match.com clocked up the findings using geo-location technology on its mobile app.

The dating site’s relationship expert Katie Taylor said: “It just shows how getting off the Tube even one stop earlier could make all the difference in your quest to finding a partner.”
