Angel is married to Michael but they decided to open up their lives to other people.

Maddie is Michael’s girlfriend while Mike is Angel’s boyfriend and both of them stay over at the married couple’s house.

Angel has had five other male relationships, one female relationship and she Mike online.

She also encouraged her husband Michael to ask Maddie out because she knew he liked her.

When asked about their unconventional lifestyle, Michael explained: “Polyamory is about having meaningful relationships with other people rather than it just being a physical thing.

Phillip then asked if what they’re doing constitutes an affair but Michael said: “No, everyone involved knows what’s happening from the very beginning.”

 Angel admitted making their relationship work is all about 'time management'

Maddie identifies as being asexual and Phillip quizzed them about their sex lives by asking if it was a case of Michael putting her “nightie down” when he was “finished”.

“Monogamy works for some asexuals, it’s entirely up to the individual, it doesn’t work for me because I love people differently,” she explained.

“I don’t have sexual attraction to people so it’s not about having sex with loads of people.

“We’re still intimate, we still have physical connection, we just don’t have a lot of sex.”

Meanwhile, viewers at home couldn’t get their heads round the interesting dynamic with many saying they couldn’t let their partner get with someone else.

One wrote on Twitter: “Polyamory marriage, absolutely not! Someone explain this to me, if I saw my husband with another women Id gouge their eyes out🙃 #ThisMorning”.

I had to Google polyamory and throuples, that just goes to show how much I know. I’m so busy being all basic with one BF. #ThisMorning

Surely him having feelings for another woman is doing the opposite of ‘making the marriage stronger’ #ThisMorning

#ThisMorning Good luck to them all in the polyamorous relationship. I couldn’t share a partner though ~ I like them to be all mine.☺️
