Jennifer Aniston is the perfect friend to share a long-distance road trip with, according to a survey of film fans.

The actress, who shot to fame as Rachel Green in US comedy Friends, picked up 13.5 per cent of the votes in the UK poll.

She was followed by Simon Pegg who starred alongside Nick Frost in the alien road trip movie Paul.

The Spaced star got 10 per cent of the vote in the poll of more than 1,000 people that was carried out to mark the start of Sky Movies HD Road Trip Movie Season.
