Ever wondered which night of the week is best for sleep? You might assume it's Friday or Saturday, thanks to our 6.30am alarm finally shutting up for a while – but you'd be wrong.

Experts aren't certain why Tuesday is the best night for sleep, although they suggest it could be down to a lack of hangovers and rich food, which disturb sleep later in the week.

Interestingly, we actually sleep for the longest at the weekend – an average of 30 minutes extra - but this kip is generally of a lower quality than the midweek snoozing.

So yet another example where it's quality, not quantity, that counts!
