This adds a degree of tension to the relationship, and as long as you make sure the antagonist is less of a "villain", we're allowed to root for them.

Mark and Jeremy desperately team up to prank call Sophie and launch a pepper spray attack on Super Hans, who has begun a relationship with Toni.
By the end of the series, Mark nearly succeeds in having sex with Sophie, but this chance is ruined by Jeremy's apparent overdose.
Meanwhile, Jeremy's efforts to get back together with Suze are hindered somewhat by Super Hans' attempts to go cold turkey.
Shortly after, Jeremy claims to Toni that he has a terminal illness in order to receive sexual favours from her.
In series 2, Jeremy meets, falls in love with and starts a relationship with Nancy (Rachel Blanchard) - an attractive and happy-go-lucky American. Mark forges a short friendship with a colleague, whom he discovers is a neo-Nazi.
During series 4, Mark and Sophie visit Sophie's parents after their engagement, and Jeremy has sex with Sophie's mother.
Big Suze breaks up with Jeremy once again after he tries to prostitute her to Johnson, with whom she subsequently starts a relationship instead.
