In England, If I covertly record someone who is engaged admitting to an affair with me, is it illegal to share that with their fiance without their consent? If so, can I make their fiance aware that I have this recording?

Yes, it is unlawful to share the recording without the consent of the person(s) recorded, unless you can demonstrate it is in the public interest - which seems unlikely in this context.

If so, can I make their fiance aware that I have this recording?

Depends on your purpose. If it is merely to inform them then I don't think it is unlawful - if it is for (say) blackmail or extortion then it is unlawful.

    I am reasonably sure that this is true, but it would, improve the answer if you could cite authority or a source. May 5, 2019 at 8:15
