The Northern Irish accent is the sexiest in the UK, according to a new poll.

The dulcet tones of Liam Neeson, Jamie Dornan, Christine Bleakley and Rory McIlroy helped ensure the accent came top of the popularity charts when it comes to 'sweet talk'.

In the Asda poll of over 2,000 people from across the UK, 17% favoured the Northern Irish accent, with the Scottish accent coming a close second at 15%.

Together this means one in three claim the Celtic twang makes them feel weak at the knees.

Despite the popularity of The Only Way Is Essex it seems the accent doesn't float everyone's boat. Only 1% rated it sexy, closely followed by the Brummie, Scouse and Mancunian twangs.
