Platinum Jubilee viewers all say the same thing about singer Lulu's accent as she joins celebrations
VIEWERS of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Pageant on Sunday were left baffled by singer Lulu's "changing" accent.
The Scottish singer joined Gyles Brandreth for the commentary of the parade – where she looked back on the Queen's life.
Lulu, 73, had fans distracted after her accent changed multiple times throughout her appearance during the BBC's coverage.
Speaking on the procession of the "decades buses", which saw celebs pile on floats, she recalled her experience going down the mall.
Lulu had been part of the 1950s bus, alongside stars Bonnie Landford, Chris Eubank, Katherine Jenkins and Cliff Richard.
"This feeling, the upliftment we have felt, the joy, the love," she said of the experience. "We are all united for our beautiful Queen."

But instead of focusing on her words, viewers were left totally distracted by her accent – which appeared to be changing.
Many took to Twitter to complain about it – joking they could "take a shot" every time her voice appeared to change.
"Lulu and her transatlantic accent?" one wrote, as a second chimed in: "I see Lulu has decided to be Scottish again when she remembers."
"As is traditional, Lulu's accent has changed between Scottish, American and English at least three times," a third said.
