Stephen Fry has been named as the nation's ideal holiday companion.
The broadcaster and writer beat off competition from David Beckham, Kelly Brook and Keith Lemon to claim the top spot in the poll for the Radio Times.
Second place in the search for a perfect getaway friend went to David Beckham, with Michael Palin - who will soon rejoin Monty Python for a series of shows to be staged in 2014 - in third with David Attenborough placed in ninth position.
Jade Bremner, Radio Times travel editor, said: "I'm not surprised at all, Stephen Fry is a born traveller and would charm the pants off anyone you'd meet on your trip.
"The last thing you want when you're travelling is to be stuck with someone who can't laugh when things, often inevitably, go wrong."
David Cameron and Stephen Fry have reportedly met in the back room of a London pub to discuss the Prime Minister's decision not to endorse a boycott of the Winter Olympics in Sochi over Russia's treatment of gay people.
The Mail on Sunday quoted "well-placed sources" who said the politician and actor had a "very pleasant discussion" at The Grapes pub in London's East End on Monday evening.
The reported summit came days after the pair publicly exchanged their differing views on Twitter, triggered by Mr Fry calling for the snub.
The Prime Minister said last week that he believes it would be "better to challenge prejudice as we attend" the Winter Olympics in Russia, as calls from athletes to boycott it over its anti-gay laws continue.
Russia's pole vault world champion Yelena Isinbayeva defended the country's controversial new law, however, British heptathlete Louise Hazel said the Russian's position as ambassador for the Youth Olympics was now "ridiculous".
In response to a letter Stephen Fry wrote urging him to back the boycott, David Cameron wrote on Twitter: "I share your deep concern about the abuse of gay people in Russia...However, I believe we can better challenge prejudice as we attend, rather than boycotting the Winter Olympics".
Broadcaster Stephen Fry suggested athletes at the Winter Olympics in Sochi should create a crossed-arm "symbol" during the Games to show support for gay people in Russia.
"All athletes in the games should find a symbol - during their performance or at the end of it, and certainly on the medial podium - to show they are thinking of the gay people of Russia," Fry told BBC News at an LGBT rally in central London.
He suggested athletes could adpot a "simple" symbol of crossing their arms while holding their shoulders.
"It would just take some of the sweetness of victory out of Vladmir Putin's mouth," said Fry.
