X Factor judge Cheryl Cole tops the poll as the UKs favourite fantasy car passenger, according to a new poll by Bridgestone tyres.
Cheryl topped the poll with 44% of votes, followed by Angelina Jolie with 35%.
While the survey by the Japanese tyres manufacturer indicates that women appear to prefer brains to beauty, with 42% choosing Stephen Fry over David Beckham, who scored 22% of the vote.
So what does this tell us? Men are looking for a trophy in the passenger seat, while women are in search of witty banter while they drive, according to What Car?
On a more serious note, three-quarters of the 4000 people surveyed said that the recession had not affected their driving habits.
However, 16% said they were driving less, while 4% said they’d sold their vehicle as a result of the economic downturn.
Andy Dingley, senior analyst at Bridgestone, said: ‘We are so attached to our cars that it would take more than a credit crunch for us to change our driving habits.’
