The Yorkshire accent is a point of pride across the county, and despite its multitude of dialects, it remains distinctive.
A new survey of 1.5 million people in the UK has revealed how sexy the Yorkshire way of speaking is compared to other accents across the country.
Did Yorkshire make the top 10?
The Yorkshire accent narrowly made it into the top ten, edging out Cockney to take ninth place.
The survey, carried out by Big 7 Travel, ranked the top 50 sexiest accents in the UK.
Of the Yorkshire accent the travel company wrote: “Yorkie is one of England’s most-loved accents, where words are shortened and ‘the’ and ‘to’ is lost altogether. Case in point? “I’m chuffed t’bits!”
Questionably, the survey also ranks the Leeds accent as a separate entry outside of ‘Yorkshire’. The Leeds accent also makes the top 25, ranking at 17th.
Other parts of Yorkshire also had their own separate rankings, including Sheffield which came 41st and Bradford, which was positioned at 27th.
Hull also had its own place in the chart and came out near the bottom, ranking 48th.
The top three sexiest accents according to the poll were Essex, Northern Irish and Glaswegian. The Brummie accent was rock bottom.
