As a new study makes the claim, we asked if these celebrity couples could test the theory.

Ben Fogle married Marina in 2006 and met her while walking her dog in London's Hyde Park.

A new study claims that men and women have a "type" – and tends to be someone who looks like his own mother or father.

When it comes to looking for a long-term partner instead of a sexual adventure, men will go out with women with the same or similar color of eyes and hair as their own mothers.

Women will choose a long-term male partner with the same eye and hair as their own parents, provided that he was present during his childhood.

The scientists said that we are unconsciously "printed" to look for partners who look like our parents from an early age.

The following celebrity examples ranging from Michael Douglas to Victoria Beckham test the theory that men and women have a "type".
