A new survey has revealed some of the irritating bedtime habits of Britons.
The biggest complaint, which was cited by 40% of the couples, was the "tuck and roll", where a person holds on to the edge of the duvet and rolls away from the other, leaving them in the cold. The survey of 1,000 people found that the second worst habit was the "midnight shuffle", where one sleeper moves away from the other and is slowly followed across the bed by the other person.
Advertisement"Research shows that one in 10 couples currently have separate beds. However, one out of five would love to have their own bed if only their partner would suggest it," said Jessica Alexander, from The Sleep Council. "A really big bed and separate bedding might solve some of the problems, but if sleeping habits are desperately different, then separate beds or bedrooms is the only answer."
Some of the other complaints included snoring, flatulence and drooling.
