A throuple who identify as a troll, leprechaun and fairy have opened up about their unique fairytale lifestyle, telling slightly baffled This Morning viewers that they are considering adding another mythical creature to their relationship.
Princess Lolly the fairy, Gunther the troll and Ion the leprechaun appeared on the daytime show today to share some insight to their polyamorous set-up.
The Seattle-based trio said they are in a 'closed polycule', with Lolly explaining: "We consider ourselves a closed family unit.
"The more people, the more everyone's time becomes divided and we have a really good fluid working family unit."
While they're cautious about adding others into the throuple, Lolly said they would consider letting someone else join the fun.
"I think actually the only type of other person that would fit is a fairy or a very adventurous healing sort," she said.
"We are pretty dedicated to what we do so if you can't be dedicated with us then it won't work in the long run."
Lolly has been a fairy for 'many years', but found it hard to be more specific about when it all started.
"We don't like to count too much, you know how counting goes with time and fairies, but since I was a youngling," she said.
The relationship started with Lolly and Gunther, who met at one of her Fairy Blossom festivals and now run renaissance events together, before they were later joined by maths teacher Ion.
Gunther said he never gets jealous of Ion, as the trio are always sure to split their time evenly.
"I've never gotten jealous," he said.
"We do a lot of what we're doing as a unit and a family, in everyday life and in general and I've said the biggest thing is making sure we have that time we can get in there."
They each have separate bedrooms, but 'do things together until it comes to bedtime'.
Lolly said: "Gunther and I work together on my business and Ion works at his secret job and then in the evening we all have a family dinner and then break out usually because I'm a workaholic, as a fairy."
She added that they'd recently contracted coronavirus after a trip to the dentist - or the 'tooth fairy'.
"It was because of the tooth fairy we caught it," she said.
"One of us had to go to the tooth fairy and that was where the Covid was contracted and spread to everybody in the household. The residual effects are real, we can all testify I think."
Many viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction to the 'bonkers segment', with one writing: "This was crazy."
Someone else wrote: "Wtf did I just watch on This Morning a fairytale throuple consisting of two leprechaun and a fairy."
Another, however, simply put: "Each to their own."
