Brenda Blethyn has told how she ended up buying a bed after she sat on it in for a rest – and nodded off.
The actress, who stars in TV detective show Vera, said she was so exhausted after filming that she dozed off in Harrods.

Brenda, 71, said: "I was so tired after working all night, so I went into Harrods furniture department as all the cafes were full and thought, 'Oh, I'll have a lie on a bed.' It was so comfortable I nodded off – and then bought it."
The star, who has been acting since the 70s, also told the Radio Times about how she copes with negative response to her work.
