Britons said Beyonce is the celebrity they would most like to travel with, according to a survey
It seems Beyonce is the dream girl when it comes to picking the ideal holiday companion.
The singer has topped a poll by holiday comparison site Icelolly as the person Britons would choose to go with on a break.
Spouses, partners and friends should not feel too disheartened though, as the survey only asked for the top picks from the celebrity world.
While Beyonce might have millions to cover any unexpected events on holiday, those going on a trip without their dream companion might be wise to ensure they have suitable travel insurance to cover any delays, cancellations or mishaps.
The wish list reveals that 21% of Britons would choose the Single Ladies singer, although there is no indication of whether recent pictures of the star having fun in a skimpy bikini on a mega yacht are the main reason behind their choice.
Among the other fantasy travel companions are fellow singers Rihanna (15%), Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (12%) and Lady Gaga (5%).
However, these famous women were beaten by DJ Calvin Harris, who is just behind Beyonce in the poll with 17% of the vote.
Other male celebrities to make the list include Hollywood movie heart-throb Brad Pitt and One Direction favourite Harry Styles, both with 7%.
Of course any list of dream holiday companions would not be complete without their opposites - the nightmare travel partner.
No prizes for guessing who most Brits thought would be the holiday companion from hell in the celebrity world.
Recent brushes with the law have seen Justin Bieber claim that particular title, with more than a third (37%) saying the singer would be bottom of their list.
And some of the usual suspects who people seem to love to hate made up the top five, with Katie Price securing 15% of the vote and Piers Morgan and Nick Clegg getting 12% each, while Miley Cyrus is the star least likely to get a holiday invite from 8% of those in the poll.
