Many of us dream about being best buddies with our celebrity idols, but how about actually living with them?
Whether it’s baking up a storm in the kitchen with Mary Berry in the kitchen or snuggling up with George Clooney on the couch, sofa and carpet specialist ScS has surveyed the public to find out the nation’s ultimate celebrity flatmates. The ITV darlings have most recently graced our screens on I’m a Celeb, the Saturday night favourites Ant and Dec were voted the nation’s most desired celebrity flatmates.
“We all have a list of celebrities who we’d like to invite to a dinner party, but how about actually living with a star? It’s no surprise that our favourite Newcastle lads, Ant and Dec, have made the top spot. The funny twosome would make for some great banter and we’re sure they would know how to throw a party!” – Commenting on the study, Kevin Royal, managing director at ScS
Renowned for their on-screen banter, more than half (58%) of those who gave the Geordie duo their vote said the presenters would make for good roomies due to their mischievous nature, with 41% saying they would make for funny drunks.
Other celebs that made the cut for potential flatmates included Friends star Jennifer Aniston, baking superstar Mary Berry and royal heartthrob, HRH Prince Harry.
When asked what activities they would like to do with their chosen celebrity flatmate, over a third (40%) said they would spend a day on the sofa watching box sets, with 35% opting to have a dinner party and 29% wanting to throw a house party.
“It’s also interesting that so many people would rather spend a night in on the sofa watching Netflix with their celeb friend over throwing a house party. Perhaps this shows how the sofa is the true heart of the home, even when entertaining the rich and famous.” – Commenting on the study, Kevin Royal, managing director at ScS
At the other end of the scale, the nation’s least-desired flatmate was reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West, with 66% of those who voted her their worst flatmate saying she would be too selfish to live with and 41% thinking she would be too loud. Kardashian-West’s title for worst celebrity flatmate was almost taken by the queen of offence Katie Hopkins and pop diva Justin Bieber.
