2. We all live in London...

We don't. Some of us live at least seven hours' drive away. (We realise that's the same as popping out for fries in the States, but to us it's a whole world away from our capital. Also: what are 'fries'?)

Sadly not. We're more likely to live in a flatshare with our mates or a semi-detached house with our family. It's only in Hollywood movies (and jigsaw puzzles) that we live in places like this.

  • 4. Our accents are either 'Costume drama cut-glass' or 'Guy Ritchie Cockney'

At one end of the spectrum, there's Eliza Doolittle after she met Henry Higgins, Julie Andrews in 'Mary Poppins' and Emma Thompson in anything. At the other: Eliza Doolittle before she met Henry Higgins, Dick Van Dyke in 'Mary Poppins' and every bloke in every Guy Ritchie movie. That's right: we're blaming Hollywood again. (And ourselves. Guy Ritchie is British, after all.)
