Breaking news: According to the polling website Ranker, the sexiest accent in the world is the Irish accent, just like Colin Farrell and Conor McGregor.

If you’re Irish, congratulations. You make women swoon every time you open your fookin' mouth.

But this is bad news for French people, I guess, because French used to be voted the sexiest accent ever year after year, but they've been overthrown by the Irish, and now they’re actually pretty far down on the list. Damn, France, what happened?

Anyway, the second sexiest accent is Spanish, probably thanks to insanely hot Spanish people like Penelope Cruz. I mean, I have to agree with this one. I could listen to a sexy Spanish person talk to me about seafood paella over a pitcher of sangria for hours.

Moving on, third places goes to Aussies (thanks, Margot Robbie), followed by Italian accents as the fourth sexiest.
