LONDON, September 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Davina McCall and Piers Morgan have topped the list of UK celebrities that the public would love to have as 'Friends With Benefits'.
The survey questioned members of online dating site FriendsWithBenefits.co.uk, who ranked their famous heart-throbs for the fantasy title.
Heading the poll for the ladies was Davina McCall, no longer presenting Big Brother but still thought of very fondly (and naughtily) by the men in the poll.
Piers Morgan was the surprise choice as top Friend With Benefits amongst the men beating off classic heart throbs such as Robbie Williams, Daniel Craig and David Beckham.
Neal Patterson of FriendsWithBenefits.co.uk said "It was fun to hear who our members dream of as their fantasy FWB. It's great to have a UK perspective on this since the film, coming out soon, is based in America."
Every man's favourite bridesmaid Pippa Middleton was in third place followed closely by Jessie J, the openly bisexual singer.
Foul mouthed Chef Gordon Ramsey will no doubt use a four letter word when he reads that Mr X Factor Simon Cowell is ahead of him at number 4.
Age was no boundary as Lord Sugar clearly "fired" up the passion of the ladies voting. Another surprise inclusion was Anne Robinson. Anne was far from the weakest link coming in at number 8 amongst the men's choice of FWBs.
Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson just made it into the top 10 but was beaten by his pint-sized co-presenter Richard Hammond who was three places ahead at number 7.
Singers featured heavily amongst the fantasy female FWBs with Cheryl Cole, Pixie Lott and Denise Van Outen making the list along with Jessie J.
The poll also revealed how acceptable the idea of having Friends With Benefits is. "Many people think that having Friends With Benefits only happens in America, but that's just not the case. We have been running FriendsWithBenefits.co.uk for nearly two years and now and have hundreds of new members joining every day," said the site's owner.
