Would depend on your listening position I would suggest.

The sides can be either side of you (especially with rears in play) or slightly behind you; if that can be accommodated then that should fix the final position for them

If this was the case what would then be the distance; not that I am sure it is relevant as long as the basics are adhered to?

Need also to think of your viewing distance, you haven't mentioned that, but one to one and a half metres should be fine.
If you can experiment with those distances before finally fixing would be even better.
