Don't know the difference. Whatever the accent is on Coronation Street, I'm ruling that out lol!

That's mostly Mancunian, which isn't on the list but it's related to Scouse, Yorkshire and Geordie

I think old school RP. It's not on the list but posh middle class comes closest.

Cannot stand British English, sound wise; can't get why movies/books, general public has hyped up how sexy it sounds coz it doesn't. I will go with the one that sounds closest to American English.

"British English" always seems like an unnecessary phrase to me. Surely it's simpler just to call it English? Then add stuff like American English etc when talking about its later versions.
