Socks5 and Google's automatic geo location redirect

Hi All, I am using AdGuard on Android which allows a socks5 connection to also keep anonymity. Obviously PIA's only socks5 proxy is based in the Netherlands which means google redirects to .NL and I get nordic adverts and other locale variations on youtube and the like.

Is there any way around this? I cant see an option on Google to just force it to keep me in the UK.
