The research, commissioned by Foxy Bingo, saw 2,000 men and women be questioned over just how much money it would take for them to ditch their friend.

And 40 percent of the participants admitted they would definitely bin their bestie for the right amount.

Results showed that of those asked, women would give up their BFF for just £106,000, while men would require a bit more money at £180,000.

This put the average sum at £131,000.

Of all those questioned, those who lived in Liverpool were found to be the ‘least loyal’ to their mates, saying they would only need £62,000 to sever ties.

Meanwhile those in Glasgow, would need a bit more incentive as they asked for a £200,000 cheque to do the deed.

Some 15 percent confessed to bad-mouthing a friend behind their back, while 11 percent admitted they had a Whatsapp chat that purposefully excluded certain members of their friendship group.

Seven percent of participants made the shocking admission that they had previously flirted with their friend’s partner and a further six percent even went as far as to kiss them.

Despite these acts, many still thought they were a “good” friend, with a whopping 84 percent of people saying they would lie to protect a friend – with 21 percent adding they’d continue to back them up, no matter what they had done.
