Dan wondered if any of his fans had gone through the same experience, as he quizzed: “I think I woke up about 11 times last night. Anyone else?”
The host’s BBC Breakfast co-star Naga Munchetty, 45, was quick to empathise with him and explained she also made a “rookie mistake” in dealing with the warm conditions at night.
She wrote back: “3 times – Made rookie mistake of thinking I didn’t need the window open – oof.”(sic)
After hearing about Naga’s difficulties sleeping, Dan realised he could have made the same error.
