"Literally, I have never managed to hear the ending – no matter how difficult I found it to sleep before switching it on," she said.

"His voice is so calming and the story is so lovely – and the rescue remedy spray is the only thing that stops my mind going wild with thoughts when I’m trying to switch off."‘

Meanwhile, another called Ashley swore by "a weighted blanket and blackout eye mask".

And Natalie gave up cut down on caffeine to get better naps. "I wouldn’t say I have perfect sleep now but just as my caffeine intake has decreased, so has my Nytol consumption," she explained.
