Time to make donning a deep Scots brogue part of your night out prep - the most attractive accent in the UK is a Scottish one, according to a new survey.

An online survey by YouGov Daily asked people which UK accent they found most attractive of a set of options.

A Scottish accent pipped received pronunciation (or a BBC accent) by two per cent to become the most favoured by the country.

Essex and Birmingham saw no love, receiving only 1 per cent of the popular vote each, while Mancunians received only three per cent.

A large proportion, 29 per cent, elected for the 'Other/Don't know' option, perhaps suggesting love for an option not listed.

Yorkshire, anyone? Geordie? Scouse?
