And controversial columnist Katie Hopkins is the celebrity East Midlanders would least like to live next door to.

The research has been carried out by Go Compare, who wanted to see if the stereotypes about how friendly people are in the different regions of the UK are actually true.

The company asked 2,000 adults about their relationships with their neighbours and then analysed them based on regions, age, gender, home ownership status and other criteria.

On the overall neighbourliness scale, the East Midlands came in in eighth position, with Northern Ireland topping the charts.

The research also looked at the nastiest regions, with the East Midlands coming in sixth, and the noisiest regions, with the East Midlands in fifth.
