Geordie Lost Voice GuyI'm delighted to announce that my search for a Geordie accent for my iPad has been a success. And I'd like to say a big thank you to voice over artist, Dan Pye, for lending me his voice!

In my search to find the perfect Geordie accent, I have spent the last month listening to almost 500 potential donors from across the Newcastle area. They were each asked to read a short extract from my book, I’m Only In It For The Parking.  I then listened to each entry in turn in order to select the voice that I felt best suited myself.

I was overwhelmed by the response from my fellow Geordies, and it made the job of choosing the right voice very difficult. And I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to send a recording of their voice.

But, in the end, Dan’s voice was the one that I kept coming back too and listening to over and over again. I just thought it sounded quite upbeat and friendly. Which is definitely an advantage when you’re a comedian. But I also thought it sounded similar to my family as well. my family are from Consett in County Durham, so I’d like to sound as close as I can to that. And I think that Dan's voice fits the bill perfectly. Thankfully, my family agreed with my choice too.

I can’t wait to get started on the project with Dan and CereProc, and I look forward to you all hearing my new Geordie accent soon.

And, if you can't wait that long, here's Dan reading an extract from my book....

Very cool. Is guest presenters of the Shipping Forecast a thing? I think I would tune in for a LVG special 😂

You could have asked Ross Noble to do it. That would be confusing! 😂

Can you please say "mind the gap" in your new voice! 👏

Wow!! That's incredible!

Aw love this xx

Wow! Amazing!

Nice one Lee

❤👏

Do you know where you misplaced your voice? Can you remember where you were when you last had it? You've probably put it down somewhere and forgotten about it.

Makes it sound like you left your voice on the bus! Lol And since when has a Geordie accent been an accessory?! Lol

Listen just because you dont know where it is doesnt mean you can just up and take Geordies!

Maybe trying to be politically correct? "Misplaced" sounds so much gentler than "Lost". LOL

Did you check under the settee? I'm always finding misplaced things there - normally just little things like socks and tweezers though, my marbles have yet to turn up down there 🤔

Damn careless of you! Have you re-traced your steps?

That’s very PC, it’s not lost...it’s simply misplaced which implies it can still be found... 🤔

It has a ring to it.

Dan you shall now only be known as The geordie accessory, change your name immediately 😜 😂

Brilliant! PC at its best 😀

As a Taffy I can do a fair Geordie me self like!

I think I found the reason...

Have you checked down the back of the sofa?

Yeah but that's kinda funny 😆

Andy Brown

Misplaced???😂😂😂. Lol

sue those fuckers

Thank you so much Lee for choosing my Son, Dan 🤩 Good luck with your new voice 😊 xx

this kind of opens new worlds for you. it would be fab to have a range. you could add impressions to your act. 😁😉 as a Geordie I think I'd get a snnoty posh woman's voice so I would get better service, and not get talked down to in Fenwicks. x

Absolutely brilliant.... that's a right bobby dazzler of a voice, really suits you.🔥🔥

Great news, I’m in New Zealand and am stuck with an English voice too (I also have cerebral palsy)

Great news from the Geordie lost voice guy a truly amazing young man.

I'm honestly so happy for you, your Geordie Accent is amazing
