Millions of people in the UK – including here at Jammy Toast and over at The Chimpton’s – have skipped sleep or made themselves tired the next day because they were binge-watching TV, new research has suggested. More than half of British adults watch more than one episode of the same show back-to-back at least once a month. Of those, a third – almost 10 million – admit they have missed sleep or become tired as a result, while a quarter say they have neglected household chores. Media watchdog Ofcom did the research into what it called “Box Set Britain”.
