Third of Brits go to bed naked while one in ten sleepwalk, poll reveals

A THIRD of Brits now go to bed starkers while one in ten sleepwalk, a poll reveals.

Those aged 45 to 54 were likeliest to nod off in their birthday suits.

In Wales, 35 per cent of people slept naked, just ahead of the South West where the figure was 34 per cent and the North East on 33 per cent.

It was least common in Northern Ireland, with 21 per cent and London on 24 per cent.

Sleepwalking was most common in Birmingham and London, where 17 per cent had a nightly wander.

At the other end of the scale, six per cent of Geordies had a stroll.

The poll found that pensioners were least likely to sleepwalk, with barely one per cent admitting to it, compared with 22 per cent of 18 to 44-year-olds.

Bed company Silentnight commissioned the poll ahead of World Sleep Day today.

Its survey also found one in ten talk while asleep.

Women were the most likely to talk in their sleep (13 per cent) compared with just nine per cent of men.

Pensioners were least likely to have a chinwag in the land of nod, with just five per cent babbling before dawn.

It compares with 16 per cent of 18 to 44-year-olds and 11 per cent of those aged 45 to 64.

Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, a consultant at Silentnight, said Brits were getting a little over 6½ hours sleep a night — short of the recommended eight.

She added: “Sleepwalking and sleep talking are regularly triggered by lack of sleep, stress and anxiety.

“But what many perhaps don’t know, is that often all we need is a good night’s rest. Our sleep habits change.”
