Planets orbiting around two stars – circumbinary planets – are beautiful tools in astrophysics. They shed light on planetary and stellar formation processes, showcase rapid orbital dynamics and provide a pathway to the characterisation of temperate atmospheres. I will show this by analysing the observational trends seen to date and what we can (or cannot) deduce from them. In particular, I will propose an argument to explain why no circumbinary planets have been found orbiting around the tightest binaries (binary period < 7 days).
