According to a new survey carried out by Continental Tire in Great Britain, BBC Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has been voted the celebrity most Brits would least like to share a driving adventure with.
The controversial TV presenter was rated as the worst person to share a 4x4 drive across the Sahara Desert. Hot on Clarkson’s heels was Prime Minister David Cameron a close third.
The results also included Madonna, Simon Cowell and Lewis Hamilton in the top ten.
Three quarters of drivers would rather ditch a celebrity, with nearly half opting for a family member to join them, while the rest put friends in front of the famous.
The poll of 2000 motorists by Continental Tire identified a good sense of humor as the top trait for a co-driver, ahead of good motoring knowledge and survival skills.
The research was conducted as part of the launch of this year’s Conti 4x4 Trophy, where people compete for a place on an epic off-road challenge, driving a Hummer across the Sahara Desert.
When men were asked which female celebrity they would choose to do the journey with, Kelly Brook was number one. And women chose Robert Pattinson to rev their engine.
