For twenty years hot Jupiters have been challenging planet formation theories. While in-situ formation has rapidly been rejected, the giant planets migration mechanisms are still not well understood. Disc migration is probably the dominant scenario but it cannot explain the observed population of hot Jupiters. Dynamical models involving the influence of an additional planetary or stellar companion through scattering or Kozai-Lidov mechanisms could also explain planetary migration. Their role needs to be characterised. High eccentricity migration mechanisms are triggered by the presence of an additional object. Knutson et al. (2014) searched for planetary companions to hot Jupiters and deduced that half of them had a giant planetary companion. We have performed our own independent search for companions of hot Jupiters. Since 2007, we have monitored the Southern WASP confirmed planets with the high-resolution echelle spectrograph CORALIE . Our sample includes more than 100 targets, including 90 that have been followed for more than three years. Our results slightly differ from those of Knutson et al. (2014). I will present the results of this survey regarding the statistics of companions of hot Jupiters. I will compare our detections with the planetary occurrence rates as well as with the binary stars occurrence rates. I will describe the correlations between the presence of a companion and the properties of the hot Jupiter.
