My accents go all over. Oxford upper crust accent, surfer/stoner, Hispanic esse and Irish or Scottish accent.

Is that English Midlands? Birmingham, Leicester sorta thing? Funny how Nottingham's classed as midlands, but the accent there's totally different...
I don't much sound like a Brumy, if that is what you mean! I grew up in a place equalidistant to all three locations you just mentioned. I have a rather hard "a" vowl. When I go for a picnic I sit on my ass in the grass, not my with my arse in the grarss.
Nope, he's Cockney. He drops Hs and other consonants in places I don't, th-fronts (which some Estuary speakers do but I don't) and his vowels are a little different. Some Estuary speakers are closer to the Cockney or to the RP end of the scale than others, so it does cover a range of ways of speaking really and there are borderline cases at each end which are harder to categorise, but I think most would class him as having enough Cockney features to qualify as Cockney rather than Estuary.
A better example is the Beckhams, especially Victoria as David mumbles a lot. I speak just like Victoria Beckham in terms of accent, only much more rapidly, clumsily and falteringly. I prefer typing.
