KATE Garraway revealed her hack to get a better night’s sleep in heatwave on Good Morning Britain today – but Dr Sarah Jarvis warned viewers to avoid “ice burns”.
Kate and co-host Adil Ray discussed the muggy weather this morning, with weather presenter Laura Tobin revealing the UK could experience record overnight temperatures tonight.
Adil asked Kate how she slept last night, and she moaned: “Terribly, it was so hot and muggy … Everyone is struggling.”
Revealing how she attempted to beat the heat, she added: “I tried the whole dipping your bed sheet in water, it does work a bit but then you get too chilly.”
Adil and Kate then asked viewers to send in their tips on how to stay cool at night – when Dr Sarah issued a warning.
After advising tips such as having a cool shower before bed and using a cold hot water bottle, Dr Sarah insisted: “Please don’t forget; never put ice directly onto your skin because that can cause ice burns.
“But a cool flannel around your neck, and possibly putting sheets in the freezer, but not again risking any ice burns, can help.”
Adil left Kate green with envy when he revealed he has air conditioning – because he’s staying in a hotel while hosting GMB.
The Citizen Khan star told viewers: “Try and get a job with ITV and they’ll put you in a hotel with air conditioning.
“If you travel from Birmingham they are required to put you in a hotel it’s great.”
