The poll has become something of an annual tradition but has changed this year, with the emphasis on finding the 'most depressing place to live', as opposed to the 'worst place to live', in the UK.

So far the list includes more than 150 towns and cities but there is an option to add a town that has not previously been mentioned. 

Once nominations close, the 'most depressing' town or city will be revealed. 

Towns and cities across the UK, including numerous places in Hampshire have made the list of nominations, including Basingstoke, Aldershot, Andover, Portsmouth and Eastleigh.

A statement from iLiveHere said: “Bland, boring, soul destroying mediocrity with a gaping cultural void. This is what our new poll is about.

"This year we are ditching the usual suspects to focus on those towns throughout this septic isle that give you an almost-terminal case of ennui. The towns where you just exist rather than live.”
