Preston have appeared in a list of “Top 50 Sexiest Accents”. Hmm. Interesting.
Research carried out by BigSevenTravel suggests that the Preston accent is the 31st most attractive accent, appearing higher than the Blackpool accent and lower than the Lancashire accent.
The blog describes the accent as “Similar to the Blackpool accent, it’s pretty much Lancashire but not as broad. Subtle, but officially less sexy”.
The Lancashire accent appears in a higher position ranking 15th. Describing the Lancs accent, they say “Similar to Yorkshire, yet so so different. Yorkshire say “O’Reet” whereas Lancashire say “O’reyt”.”
What do you think to the Preston accent? Does it turn you on?
