If you’re a Towie fan then it may come as no surprise to you that the Essex accent has been voted the sexiest in the UK.

A poll by Big 7 Travel ranked the Northern Irish accent second, Glaswegian third and Queen’s English as fourth.

The Mancunian accent came in fifth ahead of the city’s close rivals the Scousers.

The poll of the firm’s social media followers found the Brummie accent was the least sexy, coming in 50th place.

In 49th spot is the Gloucestershire accent, with Hull City taking 48th place, the West County at 47, Wolverhampton at 46 and Bristolian at 45th.

A spokesman for Big 7 Travel said: “There’s very few other English-speaking countries with as many varieties of accents and language in such a small space, making the British Isles uniquely diverse when it comes to dialects.”
