As Lucy Mecklenburgh and Michelle Keegan swap men, I bring you the top five Celebrity Love SQUARES ever!

Dating Dilemma 101: How do you get over your ex being sickeningly loved up with someone new?
Answer: Date their ex of course!

It’s a rule that certainly seems to be working for Lucy Mecklenburgh and Max George.

Last week we saw pictures of Lucy‘s ex Mark Wright and Max‘s ex (and gorgeous Now columnist) Michelle Keegan snuggled up, sharing an iPod and asleep on a plane looking oh-so-adorable.

It was enough to make us coo/go green with envy (depending on your romantic inclination).

But just imagine if the subject of that OTT-uber cute photo was your ex. Gulp.

Well, Lucy Meck – who dated Mark on and off in 2011 – and Max George – who broke up with Michelle in April 2012 – barely had time to feel well jel of the loved-up couple, as they were too busy getting it on themselves!

The pair was snapped looking very close after The Wanted‘s gig in London’s G.A.Y last weekend.

Was it some kind of revenge? Or, more likely, is this just proof that Max George and Mark wright share very similar taste?

This Celebrity Wife Swap is such a good idea, maybe they should make a TV show about it … oh hang on…

You would have thought this phenomenon was rare but it seems lots of celebs are at it…

My Top Five Celebrity Love Swaps:

Thom Evans/Kelly Brook/Danny Cipriani/Jessica Lowndes
Kelly, 33, traded rugby player Danny, 25, for, um, rugby player Thom Evans, 28. Danny dated 90210’s Jess, 24, but then went back out with Kelly, while Thom found comfort with Jess… What the Kel?!

Prince Harry / Caroline Flack / Harry Styles / Cara Delevingne
Okay, not exactly a square, but close! Prince Harry, 28, was linked with Caroline Flack, 32, in 2009. She then had a three-month fling with Harry Styles – then 17 – which ended in January 2012. He was later linked with model of the moment Cara Delevingne, 20, who last month traded numbers with our prince…

John Mayer/ Jennifer Aniston / Jake Gyllenhaal / Taylor Swift
John, 35, dated friend Jen, 43, in 2008/9 who was then linked to her Good Girl co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, 32, in 2010 who dated Taylor Swift, 23, a few months later. She had previously gone out with John just after his split with Jen in 2009. Now that something to sing about!

Ryan Reynolds / Blake Lively/ Leonardo DiCaprio / Scarlett Johansson
Ryan, 36, split with wife Scarlett, 28, in 2011 and married Blake, 25, who had previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio. Last October, US mags claimed Leo, 38, was briefly linked to Scarlett.

Jennifer Ellison / Steven Gerard / Alex Curran / Robbie Tickle
Jen, 30, was dating Stevie G, 33, before netting businessman Robbie who had previously scored with Stevie‘s current wife Alex, 30 before they got together. Surely there’s a penalty for all this swapping?
