What's causing the loud noise coming from my car when I accelerate?

I have a 2006 Honda Jazz, which has started making a noise when I increase in speed, almost like I have a motorbike in the car with me. The noise then decreases when i'm slowing down. Do you know what the issue could be?

Your exhaust has failed, probably at the manifold.
