No, it's not 1 April - hotel chain Holiday Inn is employing human bed warmers
to help guests get a good night's sleep.
The walking electric blankets are dressed in special (creepy) all-in-one sleeper suits and are sent to warm the beds of guests staying at the Holiday Inn before they get under the covers. The idea of a total stranger getting into your bed and snuggling up moments before you do is rather off-putting. Guru can't imagine there will be much call for this 'service'.
Sleep experts reckon creating a warm environment will help people drift off to sleep more quickly. Holiday Inn spokeswoman Jane Bednall said the idea was "like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed".
Guru is sure some London hotels have been offering 'bed warmers' for years, although they come at a price. As for Yours Truly, Mrs Guru will do just fine to warm his bed up.
