The Sexiest Accents Have Been Revealed, And It’s ‘Pure dead brilliant’

A survey of 2,500 people has revealed the sexiest accent and ma heid’s mince.

It's easy to fall in love with an accent, and a survey that asked 2,500 people what they think the sexiest accent is from around the world, has a surprising result!   

The results between men and women are pretty different. But 8 out of 10 people consider accents attractive in potential partners.   

For the ladies, the Scottish accent takes the top prize. It's possibly because it's better when you don't know what your possible partner is saying? Yer bum's oot the windae. Or maybe Channel 10's Jock Zonfrillo has caught your ear.   

In a not too distant second, is the Irish accent with Italian, French and Spanish trailing a little bit behind but still popular. Australia is a little further down the list, ahead of South African and Mexican.   

For the gentlemen, the Spanish accent was found to be absolutamente irresistible. Other Latin languages also caught the men's ear, with Brazilian Portuguese near the top of the list. Surprisingly, the Australian accent came in third, just ahead of the New Zealand accent.   

Scottish was popular with the ladies, but it's a complete flip at the bottom of the list for the gents. Yer aff yer heid.
