Interesting Facts - Accents

According to a survey by RoxyPalace.com, British women find an Irish accent is the sexiest accent in the UK.

(The success of the Irish accent (which also beat the French accent in a worldwide poll in 2009) is thought to be down to celebrity status of singer Danny O' Donoghue and One Direction's Niall Horan. And it probably doesn't hurt that Colin Farrell and James Nesbitt are Irish too, and Essex probably ended up at the bottom because of TOWIE.  (If you're not sure what TOWIE is, consider yourself lucky).

The results of the British poll were:-

1. Irish - 28 per cent
2. West Country - 19 per cent
3. Geordie - 17 per cent
4. Mancunian - 11 per cent
5. Glaswegian - 8 per cent
6. Scouse - 6 per cent
7. Yorkshire - 5 per cent
8. Welsh - 3 per cent
9. Brummie - 2 per cent
10. Essex - 1 per cent
