... Brits 'lie in' for 6 months in a lifetime Brits 'lie in' for 6 months in a lifetime

20 February 2008

The average UK resident will spend six months of their life having a lie-in, according to new research.

Britons who can't bear to get out of bed with their alarm will spend an average of three days a year back under the duvet.

The study conducted by Subway found that people spend an average of 15 minutes extra in bed during the week even though they know they should get up and go to work.

Some people have to eat their breakfast at their desk at work because they have overslept.

Juliette Kellow, of the Subway chain, said: "It's understandable why so many of us choose to lie-in, especially during winter.

"When we're cosy in bed and it's dark and pouring with rain, the last thing most of us want to do is get up a little earlier to prepare breakfast."
