    So no west country at all?

    p.s. please don't ruin my hopes and dreams.
    Even living with two girls from the wilds of somerset for three years didn't give me a west country twang.

    ...and by that I mean, of course, I'm heavily west country and you'll definitely pick it up

    Mine is largely the same, I tend to say 'duck' and imitate the Stoke accent occasionally. I've noticed that on some words I sound a bit Stokie, I imagine that'll change when I move away from uni after I graduate. My boyfriend is a Stokie so I can imitate it quite well apparently!

    I have a slight Brummie accent, I lived in Dudley for 6 years, moved to London for another 6 and back up to Birmingham when I was 12 so I'm all over the shop with my accent sometimes
