Cheryl Cole has been voted the most desirable companion on a long-haul flight
Cheryl Cole has been named the UK's most desirable companion on a long-haul flight.
The Girls Aloud star has bagged 37% of votes in a poll commissioned for Air New Zealand, which asked people to nominate a celebrity with which to share a trans-Atlantic flight.
Kate Winslet, Keira Knightley and Emma Watson all tied in second place.
Oscar-winner Colin Firth followed by David Beckham and Orlando Bloom were voted the top three men in the poll.
Even if your dream does come true and you get to travel with the celebrity of your choice, the trip could soon turn sour if you neglect to secure comprehensive
travel insurance and an unexpected mishap occurs.
Air New Zealand Chris Myers 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."
