What's the most attractive accent?

Forget French and Italian... slightly posh English, also known as RP, is actually the most attractive and romantic accent.

Overall the Edinburgh accent was the nation's second most popular, followed by Australian and Irish. Yorkshire, American, Geordie, Mancunian, Glaswegian, and Welsh comprise the rest of the top 10.

The research has been done by dating website eHarmony and they got a group of people to listen to clips of men and women with 19 different accents.

More than 20% admitted to going on a date simply because of their accent.

We put the theory to the test and talk to voice coach Caryll Ziegler.
