From the birthplace of Oasis to the city's iconic Coronation Street - there were plenty of opinions.

Around Manchester, the ‘Manc’ accent varies wildly. So, at the risk of starting a riot, we asked on our Facebook page where you’re most likely to hear a ‘proper’ Manc accent. 

There were plenty of opinions and while there was some sensible debate, you lot had a laugh too, with “Benidorm” among the responses we got.

With that in mind, here’s the other suggestions we got.
