Watch the public’s reaction to Ulster men being voted ‘sexiest’ in 1988
#Watch #publics #reaction #Ulster #men #voted #sexiest,


When you are trying to describe the typical local man, would ‘sexy’ be on your top list of adjectives?

Apparently so back in 1988!




A survey conducted by She Magazine over three decades ago revealed that ‘Ulster men are Britain’s sexiest’ – a shock to a number of members of the public interviewed by UTV at the time.

In footage from Northern Ireland Screen’s Digital Film Archive, journalist Ivan Little took to the streets of Belfast to gather reactions to the news that Ulster males were “by far the sexiest, the most romantic and the best lover of them all”.

Ivan said: “And that will hardly come as a surprise to us blokes, given that modesty is another of our better features – but what about the women?

“What do they make of it all? Well, I’ve been out and about in the city centre in Belfast today to find out if they think the results of the survey are accurate.”

In a collection of hilarious responses, the public argues both sides of the results – with descriptions including “ignorant, bigheaded and no sex appeal” on one side and “very romantic” on the other.
