Lauren Goodger, Mark Wright and Sam Faiers' relationship woes have been named one of the most intriguing love triangles of all time
Lauren Goodger, Mark Wright and Sam Faiers' relationship woes have been named one of the most intriguing love triangles of all time.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' stars' complicated romances placed third in a new survey, with Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie topping the list.
The TOWIE trio missed out on second place to Princess Diana, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in the survey of 2000 people, which was commissioned by TV channel Really to coincide with the launch of the UK Premiere of 'Hart of Dixie'.
Charles and Diana also took fourth place, but with the late royal's romance with Major James Hewitt entering the spotlight.
Former US President Bill Clinton's dalliance with intern Monica Lewinsky despite his marriage to wife Hillary was awarded fifth place.
On the results, relationships expert Jenni Trent Hughes said "Ever since Julius Caesar, Cleopatra and Mark Anthony formed their romantic triangle in Ancient Rome we have been fascinated with the concept of a three-sided love affair. Be it a 'rivalrous' triangle with two people fighting for the attention of one; or a 'split-object' triangle with one person unable to choose between two suitors - triangle spells trouble."
'Hart of Dixie' sees Rachel Bilson's character Dr. Zoe Hart caught up in a love triangle with a lawyer and his fiance when she moves to small town in Alabama.
The UK premiere of 'Hart of Dixie' is new and exclusive to Really, Mondays at 8pm from 30th April (Sky 248, Virgin 267, Freeview 20).
