I THINK it’s pretty ruddy important to get some shut-eye during the working day. It’s tricky with Covid going on, but here’s how I manage it. Maybe you can too.

Taking your job too seriously is a real snooze-killer, so don’t worry about anything. If your naps clash with a dozen key Cobra meetings, so be it. You can always wing it, and other people will probably pick up your slack.

Just what you need for a trip to the land of nod. I like to really nuzzle into those pillows so that when I wake up, my hair is already messed up in my trademark ‘look’, which is roguish, fun and handily covers my bald patches.

Don’t let your kids disturb you

There’s very little chance of sleeping if the kids are around. So when I need a brief British version of a siesta, I have Carrie take Wilf out for a walk. Although in the past I’ve found never seeing your kids and denying some of them exist works too.

For me, exercise does the trick. So why not go on a seven-mile bike ride with your entire security detail? Yes there’s a lockdown on, but you need your beauty sleep. When you wake up, it’s unlikely the entire nation will be absolutely furious about it.
