Cheryl 'fantasy flight companion'

by  | 

Cheryl Cole has topped a list of celebrities people would like to have as their companion on a long-haul flight.

Of almost 2,000 people questioned as part of a survey conducted for Air New Zealand, 37% said the Girls Aloud star would be the date of their dreams when it comes to having a celebrity flying companion on a trans-Atlantic flight.

Second place was occupied by Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet and Emma Watson.

Cat Deeley, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sienna Miller and Helen Mirren were also among the nominees.

Colin Firth was voted the favourite male companion, ahead of David Beckham and Orlando Bloom.

Britons must, however, make sure that they have taken out a comprehensive travel insurance policy before boarding a flight.

Chris Myers, UK general manager of Air New Zealand, said: "Cheryl Cole has again cemented herself as the nation's sweetheart, being chosen as the British celebrity that most Brits like to cuddle up with on a flight to Los Angeles."
