An American in Yorkshire shared the British phrases she can’t live without – and Brits are claiming her for the UK

Back in 2021, American TikToker Lisa Dollan – known as @yorkshirepeach – shared the British insults she’d learnt since moving to Yorkshire. She went wildly viral.

Here’s a reminder.

It looks like Lisa’s learning curve is ongoing, as she recently posted this collection of British phrases she now uses, and it’s highly relatable.

TikTok users recognised their own habits in Lisa’s list – and confirmed her status as an honorary Brit.

“He couldn’t stop a pig in a passage”.


But when you go out are you going out or out out?

Down south it’s “you can fit a tank through there”.

I love you…”sainsberries”

It’s most annoying when you all run out to get the washing in, and 2 seconds later, it stops raining!
