It was a word that I used to hear a lot before coming to Australia, but as
my Dad was in the Army and we moved around with other people doing the same,
I wouldn't have pinned it to any one area.
It is also a favourite word of my husband who has never been to the UK.

It's very much a Northern word/saying. In Sheffield, like Liverpool, we
would say "dead chuffed"...I never heard it when I lived in Bristol and
certainly not here in Cornwall. Each area has it's own sayings.
