In the Republic of Ireland 49% of people admit to letting their pets in the bed.

And in Wales, sleeping next to a partner is the preferred sleeping arrangement, while a third of those in the North of England would much prefer to sleep alone.

The research of 2,000 adults by the Wool Room and Leeds University found that a third of Brits blame the hot weather for a lack of sleep at this time of year.
