    I live in South Yorkshire, in a small town just outside Rotherham (for my sins) and I have a cross between a Yorkshire accent and Received Pronunciation. I've no idea how I actually got the accent to begin with, but it's unfortunate.

    I'm from near Stoke-on-Trent, halfway between Manchester and Birmingham. A lot of my family speak with a fairly strong Potteries accent (especially my grandparents). I wouldn't say I do, but some of my friends from my school near Manchester say I sorta have an accent. By the way I can detect an accent in them.

    I don't like where I live - it's up North in the only city you'll find a pattie (Google it, you southerners won't know what one is XD ).

    I seriously cannot wait until next September when I can move away!
