Da ni ‘di curo lwerddon

According to a nationwide government survey, the Welsh language is rated as the third most attractive accent in the UK. 

In the research, carried out by YouGov, 11 per cent of respondents voted for Welsh as the third sexiest.

Welsh beat the West Country by 1 per cent and Northern Ireland by 3 per cent.


Scottish beat Welsh to top place by 9 per cent

Welsh wiped the floor with Mancunian, Brummie and Essex accents, whilst Scottish came top with 20 per cent and received pronunciation (‘educated speech’) came second with 18 per cent.

The remaining 29 per cent of the public vote was made up by “other”.

Tidy one, Wales.
