But hold on a minute. The regular presenters of Daybreak, on which programme Ms Hopkins expressed these views have strong Scots and Welsh accents. Lorraine Kelly has a wonderfully broad Scots accent. And yet she is one of the most popular and enduring television presenters in the UK.
I’m a great fan of Stephanie McGovern, whose Geordie vowels started all this.
It’s funny that Katie Hopkins thinks that regional accents don’t work on TV. I don’t think her regional accent works on TV. She’s from a region. Most people are. The Home Counties? Every time she speaks on Daybreak I desperately want to kick the living daylights out of my TV set.
