Cheating Ben's fame is growing. It is probably unwelcome.
The unsuspecting lad was apparently overheard regaling friends with tales of sexual encounters while on a train from Bournemouth to Manchester.
While Ben might consider himself a Lothario, his bragging was heard by stranger and relationship activist Emily Shepss, who shared news of the conversation on Twitter.
If anyone has a boyfriend called Ben on the Bournemouth - Manchester train right now, he's just told his friends he's cheating on you. Dump his ass x— Emily (@emilyshepss) December 1, 2017
It's clear Emily didn't think much of Ben's unfaithfulness, and she sparked a social media man hunt after revealing her alleged findings.
Tens of thousands of people responded in a bid to put an end to Ben's supposed indiscretions. Even Dragon's Den star Deborah Meaden got involved.
Maybe Ben is just full of bravado in front of his mates and you are all seeking to ruin a happy relationship. Whatever happened to privacy and secrecy? Or just minding your own businesses

It's not yet clear whether Ben's been exposed, or even whether he's been found. People have been asking for a description - some clearly for personal reasons. Lots of Bens also announced their innocence.
While many have praised Emily's tweet, others think she shouldn't have involved herself in private matters.
And, of course, it could be that Ben was simply showing off to his mates, but hasn't been as promiscuous as his tales might suggest. There are all sorts of moral dilemmas at play here.
