And one in 15 men claims to get by on less than four hours.

Zombie Britain’s sleep habits are revealed in a survey that found a fifth of us get below the recommended eight hours per night. Late-night TV and socialising followed by early rises for work are leaving swathes of the population feeling sleep-deprived.

The most usual weekday bedtime is 11pm, when a third of Brits turn in. Most common alarm call, again for one in three, is at 7am — but a fifth rise at 6am.

Lack of rest is taking a toll on our bodies, the poll of 1,184 adults for e-bedding.com found. Nearly two-thirds of those surveyed said they wake up with neck, back or muscle pain.

The online site’s Paul Coulter said: “Sleep is different for everyone and getting a good night’s kip doesn’t need to cost a fortune — even though most of us are willing to break the bank for one good rest.

“In an age of innovation, with pillows designed to cure everything from sore backs to sore heads, there is no excuse for enduring pain each night.
