The Nation’s Favourite Voice

5th Jan 2019

In a poll which asked the Great British Public who their favourite voices were, it’s no surprise that Sir David Attenborough came out on top!

It may also come as a surprise, that most of the artists featured are Brits, including David Tennant, Sir Tom Jones and even the Queen was a popular favourite.

The poll highlights the value of having the just right voice for each project and here at Great British Voices, we have 300 + professionals with their own fully equipped broadcast-quality home studio facilities. Plus, if you want the voice of any of the following featured on the poll, just ask!

No… it may not be Sir David Attenborough himself, but we have an range of authentic voice actors who can do celebrity impersonations with ease, accents with no hassle and charming characters from any tale.

And now, working in partnership with our sister-site Great British Speakers we also have an incredible line-up of celebrity voiceover talents too – some even appear on the list of the nations top 50 below. So you don’t just have to hire an impressionist, your can book the real deal!
