Forget the turkey, fetch the Sparrow... hunky star Johnny Depp has been named the movie star the nation would most like to pop round for Christmas.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean star finished just ahead of stars such as George Clooney and Tom Hanks in the poll for the Sky Movies HD Christmas Channel.

Depp - famed for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates series - was the favourite Hollywood choice for a festive guest of more than 1,000 movie fans.

Top Brit - and highest ranked actress - was Emma Thompson at number four.

Ian Lewis, director of Sky Movies, said: "The guys led at the top of the league and while Hanks and Clooney would both undoubtedly light up anyone's Christmas, Depp was the clear winner for UK film fans. He is this year's ultimate Christmas cracker."

Also making the top 10 were Hollywood actresses Jennifer Aniston (fifth), Julia Roberts (sixth) and Cameron Diaz (ninth).

British screen stars Simon Pegg and Hugh Grant came in at seventh and eighth respectively, while US comic actor Jim Carrey was in tenth spot.
