I’m furious. Not only am I furious I’m also disappointed. Not just with everyone who voted in the Top 10 Sexiest Accents poll, but their families, their friends and even their pets.

Here’s the Top 10…

10th. Cockney
9th. Yorkshire
8th. Welsh Valleys
7th. Geordie
6th. Scouse
5th. Mancunian
4th. Queen’s English
3rd. Glaswegian
2nd. Northern Irish
1st. Essex

How is ESSEX number one?! What? Like Joey Essex? Terrible.

I mean, I understand the Northern Irish and Glasweigain bit – they deserve to be up there but then there’s the Queen’s English? Like Hugh Grant or some toff with a silver spoon in their gob.

The poll was created by Big 7 Travel, who collated the results  from a 1.5 million audience, with votes cast from readers across the world, including residents in the United Kingdom. You can see the Top 50 right here.

Okay so we’ve been mugged off. Let’s try and sort it out for next year. All you people with Mancunian accents I want you to try and get on TV and Radio as much as possible in the next 12 months – lets get to number 1 and shove it in them stupid Essex faces.

Lots of Love, Ben Brown x
