When it comes to accents, everyone has their own personal preferences. Some go weak at the knees at the sound of Scouse, others might be better served by a bit of Brummie.
But while it’s most definitely each to their own when it comes to accents, some are apparently considered sexier than others.
In fact, the blog Lovin Manchester has compiled the definitive list of the sexiest English accents on the planet. A list featuring a whopping 51 different UK cities, the results are likely to leave a fair few people irked.
For starters, Birmingham is ranked a sorry 51st on the list, while it’s not much better for the Bristolians among us, who sit 50th on the list.
Given that the blog is called Lovin Manchester it’s hardly a shock to find Manchester comes in at no.1, just ahead of London, which smacks of pandering to your target audience if you ask us.
There are some minor discrepencies though. For example, the Gloucester accent comes in 4th despite sounding not all that dissimilar to the Bristol one.
Lichfield also features at no.9 despite basically being a watered down Brummie accent.
Anyway, who are we to dispute such a carefully compiled piece of work. Here’s the top 51 – where does your home city feature?
44. St Albans
