Most will have read about the former McDonald’s boss, Steve Easterbrook, who was forced from his role amidst claims of “poor judgement” following a consensual relationship with an employee. Plenty will have clicked on the story revealing that former British Airways Chief Executive, Willie Walsh, was involved with a colleague – something the airline insisted had nothing to do with his subsequent departure. A quick Google search shows that even everyone’s favourite daytime presenters, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, have admitted to workplace flings – albeit not with each other.
