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

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

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

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

Dumb And Dumber funnyman Jim Carrey was third with 8.5 per cent of votes.

Jade Tan, Sky Movies scheduling manager, said: "It's clear that comedy is the best policy for a roadtrip partner, and Jennifer Aniston, Simon Pegg and Jim Carrey most certainly have it covered.

"Whether they're on the run, on a buddy trip or a wild adventure, all of these names would definitely deliver a trip to remember. The Roadtrip Movie season on Sky Movies is the next best thing if they're not available in person, and with Sky Go access in the UK our customers can also take these films out and about this summer too."
