They might be rich, they might be famous but their love lives are as tumultuous as the rest of us mere mortals.
2019 has been packed with all sorts of celebrity hook-ups, hiccups and heartaches – and the winners of this year’s Sex and Relationship Awards are…
WINNER: Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus finally married Liam Hemsworth after dating him on and off for ten years – then split less than a year later
She finally married Liam Hemsworth after dating him on and off for ten years – then split less than a year later.
While Liam revealed he was devastated by the split, one day after their separation was announced, Miley was pictured holidaying in Italy with Brody Jenner’s ex-wife, The Hills star, Kaitlynn Carter.

Miley had revealed she is still ‘very attracted to women’, despite marrying Liam, and she made up for lost time, dating Kaitlynn for a few months.
Currently loved up with Australian musician turned actor Cody Simpson, Miley couldn’t care less what the public think about her swift ‘moving-on’ rate between relationships.
She took to Twitter to blast being ‘slut-shamed’ and posted ‘Men (especially successful ones) are rarely slut-shamed. They move on from one beautiful young woman to the next most times without consequence’.
The final line of her tweet: ‘Get used to me dating – this is where I am at!’
Even if she does have a point, posting happy holidays pics with a new love ONE DAY after a split earns her the Worst Wife Award.
DODGIEST REACTION TO A NEW RELATIONSHIP
WINNER: Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant
When actor Keanu Reeves stepped onto the red carpet with a new girlfriend Alexandra Grant earlier this year, the world divided
When actor Keanu Reeves stepped onto the red carpet with a new girlfriend earlier this year, the world divided.
The first reaction by a public used to Hollywood A-listers dating supermodels was nasty. Alexandra was ‘too old’ for him and ‘looked like his Mum’, despite being nine years younger than the 55-year-old star.
The hateful trolling triggered an equally dubious outpouring of ‘love and respect’ for Keanu, with the world high-fiving him – simply for dating a woman with grey hair.
Alexandra is smart, independent, successful and talented.
Not enough there to explain the attraction, eh?
MOST INTRIGUING LOVE TRIANGLE
WINNER: Matt Smith, Lily James and Claire Foy
Matt split from Lily James after five years together with conflicting reports over why
Matt split from Lily James after five years together with conflicting reports over why. Busy workloads was one reason given; another that he’s hinted he’s ready for children while Lily has been open about having changing views on settling down.
Layered over the top was a sniff of scandal with Lily apparently uncomfortable over his close friendships with female co-stars.
Lily’s been solo on the red carpet since while Matt, Prince Philip in the Netflix drama The Crown, is now ‘close’ to his old co-star and onscreen wife Claire Foy, who played The Queen.
A case of life imitating art? Or simply great mates who are once more working together in a play, enjoying each other’s company?
Watch this space.
MOST PUBLIC ROW
WINNER: Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds
Police were called to the now Prime Minister’s flat that he shared with partner Carrie Symonds in the early hours
Police were called to the now Prime Minister’s flat that he shared with partner Carrie Symonds in the early hours, after neighbours heard a loud altercation involving screaming, shouting and banging.
At one point, Symonds could be heard telling Johnson to ‘get off me’ and ‘get out of my flat’.
Police attended and decided there was no cause for police action and Carrie now lives with Boris in No 10.
They might be the first unmarried couple to live in Downing Street but have never quite lived down the embarrassment of having their private row broadcast to the electorate.
MOST UNLIKELY ELIGIBLE BACHELOR
WINNER: Pete Davidson
Pete was engaged to pop princess Ariana Grande. Just three months after they split, he’s seen getting frisky with Kate Beckinsale at Netflix’s Golden Globes after party
This quirky looking comedian – the youngest current cast member on Saturday Night Live – has become Hollywood’s most unlikely eligible bachelor.
Pete was engaged to pop princess Ariana Grande. Just three months after they split, he’s seen getting frisky with Kate Beckinsale at Netflix’s Golden Globes after party.
He dated Kate for four months – the 20-year age difference not bothering either of them – then swiftly moved onto Once Upon A Time in Hollywood actress, Margaret Qualley.
By October, he was spotted snogging Cindy Crawford’s daughter, model Kaia Gerber in a swimming pool in Miami.
Not a bad bevy of beauties for a goofy looking guy.
THE MOST CHEATED ON CELEBRITY
WINNER: Khloe Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian finally ditched him, then hooked up with another NBA star, Tristan Thompson
When Khloe Kardashian was married to NBA player Lamar Odom, Lamar admitted that cheating was a ‘regular part of’ his relationship with the reality TV star.
‘I had broken my vows with Khloe so many times it’s just impossible for me to remember them all. I don’t know why Khloe stayed with me,’ he wrote.
She finally ditched him, then hooked up with another NBA star, Tristan Thompson.
Two days before she gave birth to their daughter, Tristan found himself at the centre of a cheating scandal.
Caught kissing several women on camera – one emerging from his hotel room after being inside for three hours – five alleged mistresses were named in the media.
Again, Khloe stuck by her man. Nearly one year later, Tristan cheated again.
In February this year, he was seen smooching at a house party in LA with model Jordyn Woods – the long-time best friend of Khloe’s little sister Kylie Jenner.
The straw that finally broke the camel’s back, she dumped him and they are now ‘100 percent over’.
Khloe hasn’t dated anyone since.
May I suggest her next date be with an excellent therapist, one who is particularly adept at teaching the giveaway signs of infidelity happening in your relationship?
COUPLE WE MOST WANTED TO GET TOGETHER
WINNER: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga
That dreamy duet at the Grammy Awards had tongues wagging but, so far, Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga have remained – disappointingly – just friends
That dreamy duet at the Grammy Awards had tongues wagging but, so far, the two have remained – disappointingly – just friends.
Gaga split from her fiancé Christian Carino and Bradley’s single after earlier separating from supermodel Irina Shayk but still there’s been no private serenading between the pair.
MOST EXTRAVAGANT WEDDING
WINNER: Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra
With not one, not two, not three but FOUR wedding ceremonies, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra win the prize of the most over the top wedding
With not one, not two, not three but FOUR wedding ceremonies, these two win the prize of the most over the top wedding.
The bride wore two elaborate wedding dresses over a three day wedding. A Ralph Lauren gown with thousands of Swarovski crystals and a 23 metre veil and a red lehenga (traditional Indian wedding dress), also adorned with uncut diamonds, emeralds and Japanese cultured pearls, that took 3720 hours to create.
The estimated cost of them tying the knot? Somewhere between $580,000 and $800,000.
MOST PUBLIC DECLARATION OF LOVE
WINNER: Hailey Baldwin
Hailey Baldwin married Justin Bieber a little over a year ago in a New York courthouse but the couple had a highly anticipated second wedding in South Carolina in October this year
She married Justin Bieber a little over a year ago in a New York courthouse but the couple had a highly anticipated second wedding in South Carolina in October this year.
Just in case any ‘beliebers’ had any doubts he’s now off the market, Hailey’s off-white wedding gown had a veil embroidered with the words ‘TILL DEATH DO US PART’.
WORST PDA OFFENDER
WINNER: Pete Davidson
Current love Kaia Gerber seems out to beat the competition with Miley Cyrus style tongue touching on a sun lounger and numerous pool PDAS, the two stuck together like Velcro
Yes, him again.
First, we were treated to intimate kisses at a New York Rangers hockey game at Madison Square Garden, with Pete and Kate Beckinsale shoving their tongues into each other’s mouths.
Next, they’re making out in the back seat of a car like teenagers.
Current love Kaia Gerber seems out to beat the competition with Miley Cyrus style tongue touching on a sun lounger and numerous pool PDAS, the two stuck together like Velcro.
MOST ADORING LOOKS
WINNER: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
The look of love: The adoring looks between Meghan and Harry aren’t losing intensity. Pictured, introducing their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world in May
They’ve been married 18 months and had their first child, Archie, in May, so you’d expect them to be all smiles.
But it’s been a tough year, and Meghan and Harry admitted they were struggling in an ITV documentary.
It certainly hasn’t damaged their relationship.
They looked besotted from the moment they announced they were a ‘thing’ and those adoring looks aren’t losing intensity.
