A study conducted by Ergoflex UK has revealed the top five things that Brits miss most when they go away on holiday, with the majority of respondents stating they miss their bed above their pets, home-cooked food, favourite TV programmes and even their friends and family.

Everyone who took part in the study was asked what they couldn’t wait to get home to – and the top five answers were their own bed, pets, home-cooked food, British TV and family and friends.

It would seem that we’re quite adept at practicing what we preach; 29% of people who would have had bedding provided during their holiday still decided to take their own.

So, next time someone brings you home a trinket from their holiday, accept it with caution – it’s probably already been rejected by their beloved bed.
