Almost half of the UK population snore at some point while sleeping. According to figures from the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association, 41.5 percent of UK adults are susceptible to the bedtime habit, including 57 percent of adult men and 40 percent of adult women.

Katherine Hall, a psychologist in sleep from Somnus Therapy, in partnership with Happy Beds, revealed that "repeating your vowels out loud" before bedtime could be the solution.

She explained: "Anti-snoring throat exercises are a great way to strengthen the muscles in your throat and stop them from vibrating as you sleep - the cause of snoring.

"A few times a day, spend a few minutes repeating each of the vowels (a-e-i-o-u) out loud and over time you'll see a difference

I Call Bull: If it were that straight forward there would be no snoring left in the world.

It has been extensively linked with being overweight with losing weight being the best advice to try and help reduce snoring
