Media company Big 7 Travel asked 1.5 million people to vote for the sexiest, and least sexy, accents in the UK. 

They compiled a list of the top 50 sexiest accents and Sheffield placed a disappointing 41st, behind the Leeds, Scouse and Mancunian accent.

Essex was crowned as the most attractive accent while Brummie was voted as the most unattractive. 

Only that, as well as Salford, Cheshire, Cornish, Bristolian, Wolverhampton, West Country, Hull City and Gloucestershire, were voted less attractive than Sheffield. 

And, just to rub it in, Leeds was voted as the 17th most attractive accent with Bradofrd 27th and Yorkshire 9th.
