IT's the question we hear nearly every day on Love Island: "What's your type?"
And while some people say they're just looking for an other half who "makes them laugh", science has now proved otherwise.
In a new study published in the PNAS medical journal, extensive research proves people tend to date partners with consistent personalities, be it bad boys, basketball players or blondes!
“The results revealed a significant degree of distinctive partner similarity, suggesting that there may indeed be a unique type of person each individual ends up with,” the study’s authors writes.
But it's a formula some of the A-listers have been following for years.
From Khloe Kardashian's penchant for sportsmen to Leo DiCaprio's love of leggy models – check out the stars who most definitely have a type.
Khloe Kardashian = Basketball players
Love and basketball certainly go hand in hand when it comes to Khloe Kardashian, 34.
Khloe makes no secret of her type, after being asked "is it time to stop dating basketball players?"on the Jimmy Kimmel show, she admits, “I like what I like. What can I say?”
Khloe famously had a rocky marriage with the Los Angeles Lakers player, Lamar Omar, 39.
The couple married in 2009 within a month of meeting one another, but after years of rumoured infidelity, they divorced in 2016.
Is it the love of the game, or the 6-foot height appeal?
But it didn't put Khloe off dating another basketball player, James Harden who plays for the Houston Rockets in 2015.
The pair dated in 2015, which James now describes as the “worst year” of his life, according to Sports Illustrated.
Khloe then moved onto her most Cleveland Cavaliers player and baby daddy Tristan Thomas, 28.
The two went on to have a daughter, True Thompson in the midst of a heavy mud-slinging cheating scandal.
Tristan allegedly cheated on Khloe with her half-sister Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods.
Khloe and Tristan then split in February this year.
Leonardo DiCaprio = Leggy Blondes
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio, 44, revealed in an interview with Glamour Magazine that he personally looks for "humility, a sense of humour and not a lot of drama," in a woman.
Although Leo claims to date women on the bases of their personality, his dating history implies a leggy blonde to be a strong visual indicator of his type.
Leo is currently dating 21-year-old Argentinian beauty Camila Morrone but his string of ex's include Gisele Bundchen, Bar Refaeli, Blake Lively, Toni Garrn, Nina Agdal, Kelly Rohrbach and Erin Heatherton.
All of which are blonde.
In fact he's dated not one, not two, but NINE Victoria's Secret models.

Leo’s history coupled with the findings from this recent study, would predict a very blonde future for Leo ahead.
Kelly Brook = Tall, dark and handsome
Model and TV presenter Kelly Brook, 39, has had a fair share of famous boyfriends from the handsome Transporter star, Jason Statham, 51, to rugby lads Danny Cipriani, 31 and Thom Evans, 34.
And these lads all have three things in common, they are tall, dark and handsome.
So, it comes as no surprise that her current bloke Jeremy Parisi is almost a carbon copy of this type.
Kelly and French model Jeremy got together in 2015 and have been together since.
In 2018 Kelly revealed that she proposed while on holiday in Antigua.
Jeremy reportedly turned her down because she asked him in a public place.
She stated that it wasn't a "serious" proposal.
That didn't rock the boat though as the pair are still happily living together and have said they hope to start a family together.
Kate Moss = Edgy rockers
Model Kate Moss, 45, is a woman who knows what she wants and holds her hands up to having a 'type.'
Speaking to LOOK magazine, Kate admits, "I quite like the way men dressed in the 70s, like Mick Jagger and Marc Bolan.
They're quite feminine but still with a tomboyish look, which I like."
And by the looks of it, she's stuck tightly to that formula.
The supermodel is currently dating German aristocrat and all round rocky- looking – Count Nikolai von Bismark, 32.
The pair have been happily dating since late 2015, following her split from The Kills rocker husband Jamie Hince, 50.
Jamie and Kate tied the knot in July 2011 but divorced in 2016.
After meeting at her 31st birthday party in 2005, Kate Moss and another rocker Pete Doherty, 39, also had a turbulent relationship for two years.
In March, the Libertines front man Pete admits to sending Kate a 'rambling love letter' – 12 years after their split.
Other tall, dishevelled rocker ex's include, Johnny Depp, Anthony Langdon, Jamie Burke and Russel Brand.
Kylie Jenner = Rappers
And it seem 'a type' runs in the family as Khloe's little sister Kylie Jenner is also one to stay true to a formula
Kylie may only be 21, but she figured out from an early age that rappers are her thing after coupling up with Tyga, 29.
The two met after Tyga performed at her 16th birthday party.
There was much controversy surrounding their 8 year age gap.
After many rumoured breakups, the pair eventually split in April 2017.
It wasn't long before Kylie set her eyes on another red carpet rapper.
Just two weeks after Kylies' split, she meet the Texas born rapper, Travis Scott, 28, at Coachella.
The smitten star went on tour with him.
"I really jumped on the bus. And then we rode off into the sunset. I did the whole tour with him," she recalled to GQ this summer.
On February 1, 2018, Kylie gave birth to their first child, daughter Stormi Webster.
Channing Tatum = Bobbed brunettes
If you're petite, talented and have a dark bob… join the queue as you could be Channing Tatum's next lady.
The actor as married to fellow Step Up co-star Jenna Dewan for nine years but when they called it quits in April 2018 it wasn't long until Channing moved on.
He's now dating Jesse J, 30, who spookily has a a very similar signature dark bob to Jenna.
Just a coincidence?
We think not.
