It seems as though?Meghan Markle isn't the only American women who swoons over a British accent.

Meanwhile, men prefer to fawn over Israeli and Colombian accents in women.?

The dating site surveyed thousands of people across the United States to find out which accent they found most attractive and it turns out that men and women disagree on which one comes out on top.?

Results of the survey revealed that over 20 per cent of women are most attracted to men with British accents - with just over 18 per cent voting for guys with a Scottish accents.?

However, as far as men are concerned, the feeling is not mutual.

Instead, the majority of men in the US think that an Israeli accent in women is hottest - 19 per cent to be precise - while a Colombian accent is a very close second with 18 per cent of the vote.

These findings just further prove why so many men are head-over-heels in love with two of the sexiest actresses in Hollywood, Gal Gadot, 32, and Sofia Vergara, 45.?

With Gal being Israeli and Sofia being Colombian, it is obvious to see why men are so attracted to the two sexy accents.

Brandon Wade, CEO and founder of MissTravel.com, shared the reason why accents have an effect on us.

'Accents have a tendency of taking our minds to unknown, and exotic places, adding a touch of mystery and intrigue to the speaker.

'As Americans we often associate British accents with intelligence and class, both desirable qualities for a mate.?

'While Israeli accents conjure up images of the Mediterranean,' he concluded.?

Two things remain the same in findings from the survey of both men and women, - neither can resist a good old Aussie and Southern accent, with both genders voting for these dialects in the top five.

However, it is a little strange how the number one accent for each gender doesn't appear on the other's list.?

While Israeli and Colombian are number one for men, they don't even pop up on the ladies list.?

Plus, number one for the girls, British and Scottish, doesn't appear on the men's list, which is a bit strange. ?

Interestingly enough, out of 21 accents listed by MissTravel.com, five accents - Nigerian, Chinese, Filipino, Jamaican and Indian - failed to get one vote from both men and women.
