She said: "Looks like French has been dethroned entirely as the language of love, with Brits preferring German and Scottish.

"I am unsurprised that Germanic is the most likely to arouse our British men, it’s dominant, icy – with a certain elusive quality.

"Scottish men. Scottish Accents. Need I say more, really? The accent is enchanting, like a seductive highland spell sweeping over you.

"There's no denying the Irish twang has always been popular, coming in at a respectable second and third place as the sexiest accent."
