We recently conducted a poll on 500 women between the age of 18 and 35 to find out which celebrities they’d least like to be stuck with on a journey to one of their favourite holiday destinations. Of the 500 people we surveyed, 21.6% thought it would be a complete nightmare to be sat next to Prime Minister David Cameron, whilst just 4% would avoid being within close proximity Piers Morgan at all cost.

When we asked which celebrities you’d most like to be sat next to, Johnny Depp and Stephen Fry topped the polls, whilst Boris Johnson would be flying solo if our respondents had their way!

We also asked what songs really make you cringe and would be most likely to drive you barmy if it was all you had to listen to on a desert island. Axel F’s ‘Crazy Frog’ won the title of the Most Annoying Song, followed by ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘The Birdy Song’.

You can see the full results of the survey in the graphs below:

From the list below, who would you most like to be sat next to on a long-haul flight?

From the list below, which song would be most likely to drive you nuts if listened to on repeat, whilst stuck on a desert island?

So, from our survey results, we can conclude that:

  • Just under a quarter of people find Piers Morgan more tolerable than the Prime Minister
  • The elusive Jonny Depp is perhaps the most desirable co-passenger on the planet
  • Politicians aren’t perceived to be good travelling companions
  • Nearly 40% of people would rather go without music on a desert island than have to listen to Axel F’s ‘Crazy Frog’

Let’s be thankful that the chances of encountering the Prime Minister, or indeed Piers Morgan, on a passenger jet are incredibly slim and if we can take anything from this research, let it be that you should have a good collection of music with you at all times, just in case you do wind up on a desert island!
