Likewise, his religious ramblings have left Steven Baldwin in the cold with voters as the Celebrity Big Brother reject has been voted the second worst celeb to fly with - securing 24 per cent of the poll.
Brits are split by Russell Brand's marmite personality and are unsure whether they love him or loath him, as he takes both fourth place and seven per cent of nominations for the best celeb to sit next to and third place on the worst celeb listing with eight per cent of the votes.
Katie Price has seems out of favour with the British public after taking fourth place and accounting for seven per cent of the poll followed by heavyweight DJ Chris Moyles with two per cent of all votes cast.
The nation's sweetheart, Cheryl Cole continues her rein of popularity by storming the chart with 43 per cent of the votes to claim the honour of the celebrity Brits would most like to cosy up with on a flight
Cheryl is closely followed by Chatty Man Alan Carr with 31 per cent of the votes. TV treasure Holly Willoughby scooped third place with 15 per cent of the nominations and newly appointed Radio2 DJ Chris Evans concludes the list of celebs we'd love to chat to with four per cent of the votes.
Paul Simmons, easyJet's UK general manager, said: "We thought it would be interesting to quiz the public on which celebs they'd most and least like to sit next to when flying with us.
"There were some clear winners when it came to the celebs that people would love to gossip with whilst travelling and those that they would prefer to leave standing in departures!"
"An advantage of travelling with easyJet is that our speedy boarding passes and open seating policy means you have more freedom when it comes to choosing who you sit next to for the duration of the flight!"
