Transit Connect making strange noise when accelerating

I've noticed a strange noise on my Ford Transit Connect when accelerating. It's only between certain revs and sounds a bit like a gurgle noise. I'm sure it's coming from under the bonnet. It's most noisy in second and third gear. Could this be something as simple as a seal on the exhaust manifold or something more serious?

Probably a failed turbo air pipe or seal. If you can't see it yourself, get it to a garage to be sure.
