In bed with sculptor Gary Betts

Are you a night owl or lark?

Definitely lark.

What time do you go to bed and wake up?

I go to bed after BBC news at 10, and wake up at 7:15

What is your nighttime routine?

A glass of wine, one tiny square of Duffy’s 80% chocolate, a cup of chamomile tea and a jug of water.

What do you wear in bed?

Soft cotton pyjama bottoms.

What is the last thing you do before you go to sleep?

Read the latest edition of the New Scientist! Sexy!

What can’t you sleep without?

An open bedroom window.

What is the best night sleep you’ve ever had?

The Four Seasons Hotel in the Seychelles, the mattresses there are insane.

What is the last dream you can remember?

Diving into an icy river to save my dog. I think we both copped it!

The best sound to wake up to in the morning? 

I live in one of the last places in the country to have a milkman so his humming electric milk cart wakes the blackbirds (and me!) up, phenomenal!
