We’ve dipped! Yorkshire has gone from being voted the sexiest accent in the UK (which is a fact) to not even making the top 3, which is just ridiculous in our book – what do you reckon?
Sean Bean, Jodie Whittaker, Alex Turner, Jarvis Cocker – need we say more? These top-tier sexy voices have been knocked off by the old stereotype of an Irish accent being sexy. And, to add insult to injury, Northern Irish is in second.
The poll which decided these results was taken by the dating site, Match which asked 2,300 people what the sexiest accent was. 28 percent of people considered the Irish accent the sexiest with 26 saying it’s hot.
Yorkshire folk came in easily 6th place, which is a far cry away from our former glory at the top of the ivory tower shouting “now then” to any lucky guy or gal that walks passed.
At the bottom of the poll was the Cornish accent which 87% of the votes decided was the least sexiest accent in the UK.
A poll, which aimed to find the UK’s sexiest accent, was carried out by the dating app Match. Outrageously, 87% of the 2,300 participants voted that the Cornish accent is not sexy.

A Match spokeswoman said “Like it or not, we’re judged on our voices in the early stages of dating. In fact, 21 per cent say they can tell if they’re going to find someone attractive just from hearing their voice.”
Another Match dating expert, Hayley Quinn added: “When it comes to attraction, your voice can be your superpower in creating the spark.
“Yes, to succeed at online dating you need great pictures, and a well written profile, but incorporating your voice gives you the chance to stand out to potential dates and to create trust. You can short circuit first date awkwardness by communicating who you are using voice notes.”
