Are you a Geordie? Are you proud of your regional accent? If not, you should be, as it’s been voted the sexiest in the UK.
People with a Newcastle twang came top in the poll by hotel chain Travelodge, beating the Edinburgh and Belfast accents.
It’s the first time the Geordies have won the number one spot and Travelodge spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed thinks she knows why.
"No doubt, the nation’s sweetheart Cheryl Cole has helped to place the jolly Geordie accent as top of the UK’s regional accents listing as we cannot get enough of her," she explained.
Other regional accents making the sexy top ten include London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Cardiff and Manchester.
So next time you Geordies are on the pull, make sure you emphasise that accent. You could find it makes you irresistible to the opposite sex.
If you’re a Brummie though, you might want to keep your mouth shut, as the Birmingham accent was voted the least attractive.
