A survey of caravan users has revealed the ideal celebrity holiday companion to be TV presenter Lorraine Kelly.

The Scot took almost a third (32 per cent) of the votes, with comedian Peter Kay taking second place with 28 per cent.

According to the poll of 1,200 Safeguard caravan insurance customers, Nigella Lawson (nine per cent) and Jamie Oliver (15 per cent) were also popular choices.

The rest of the top six was completed by Coleen Nolan, who commanded 11 per cent of the vote, and Rod Stewart, who took five per cent.

Commenting, Safeguard manager Rita Sadler explained that choosing a holiday partner wisely is an important part of a caravan break.

"We can see why Lorraine Kelly would make the perfect holiday pal as her down to earth chatter would keep you entertained on the journey," she said.

Meanwhile, the Melton Times recently reported that a group of protestors have marked their one year anniversary of living in a caravan at a site where a telecoms company wishes to erect a phone mast.
