High-flier Cheryl tops fantasy poll
The sky is the limit for Cheryl Cole after she was voted the nation's favourite fantasy companion on a long-haul flight.
The Girls Aloud star picked up more than a third of the votes (37%) with Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet and Emma Watson all tied in second place.
Other nominees included Cat Deeley, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sienna Miller and Helen Mirren.
The top three favourite men were Oscar-winner Colin Firth followed by David Beckham and Orlando Bloom.
Around 2,000 people took part in the poll carried out for Air New Zealand which asked people to nominate a celebrity to share a trans-Atlantic flight with.
Its UK general manager 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."
