YouGov have done a survey to find out what accents of the British Isles are considered to be the sexiest and ugliest.
The top 3 sexiest accents were voted to be Southern Irish, Received Pronunciation and Welsh. If you’re wondering what received pronunciation is, the dictionary defines it as “the standard accent of English as spoken in the south of England.”
The three least attractive accents (starting from the bottom) are Brummie (Birmingham), Scouse (Liverpool) and Mancunian (Manchester).
I guess if you’re from the Republic of Ireland it’s time to start over pronouncing your accent if you really want to pull. You’ll probably only have to say “hello” to make their knees tremble.
If you want to see the full results, look at the following map.
If you need an example of what any of these accents sound like give this a watch:
