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 over night temperatures tonight.
Adil asked Kate how she slept on Monday, and she moaned: "Terribly, it was so hot and muggy … Everyone is struggling."
Revealing how she tried 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.
"We don't want to have a really cold shower. If you have a cool shower and then allow the water to evaporate off your skin… it will definitely help cool you down."
Sarah went on: "They stole my idea about the cold hot water bottles, but 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 said: "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."
Friday was the hottest August day for 17 years, with the highest temperature recorded at 38.5C at Faversham in Kent on August 10, 2003.
Beach-goers packed onto coastal roads with gridlock queues of more than two miles at Bournemouth and Camber Sands seeing car parks full by midday.
