Claudia Winkleman has two naps a day.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" host - who has three children; Jake, 15, Matilda, 12, and Arthur, seven - has had to stop herself from having a snooze in the afternoon before she picks her kids up from school because it was interrupting her quality of sleep at night.

Speaking on the Emma Guns Show beauty podcast, she said: "I'm not that busy, and I do like napping. I've had to stop having two naps a day as I was no longer sleeping at night, that's what happened when I turned 46. I love a nap. Yesterday I thought, "I don't even need a nap, but I'm going to have one." I've had a good night's sleep, it was not necessary. I didn't have to leave the house until 2.45pm to pick up the kids, I've eaten, it's 1.15pm, let's just see what happens, an hour and a half later -- snore."

The 46-year-old beauty isn't the only television star who has an odd sleeping regime as Nigella Lawson recently admitted she naps in two-hours bursts so she can drink tea.

The 58-year-old chef explained: "What I like a lot about getting older is you don't feel embarrassed about going to bed early. I'm like, "When can I lie down next?" That's all I think about really. I would very happily go to bed at 7.30pm. I'm not sleeping. I don't do much but I need to be lying down. I think that in a way is a wonderful state to be in.

"I need time to wind down and that takes its own time. I make myself cups of tea as well. I sleep in only two-hour bursts and not many of them."
