Kate Garraway reveals Derek Draper had a 'stable' day as she gives update on husband's condition
Kate Garraway shares update on husband Derek Draper and reveals he’s having 'challenges' with his lungs
“I tried the whole dipping your bed sheet in water, it does work a bit but then you get too chilly,” Kate explained.
However, the hack she does believe works well is putting freezing cold water in a hot water bottle which, Kate gushed, “does work” adding: “It does help definitely.”
Kate, who recently gave an update on husband Derek Draper's condition, told co-host Adil Ray she’d slept “terribly,” due to what she coined as “hot and muggy” weather the night before.
The best fans from hand-held to floor standing to get you through the heat wave
Adding to Kate’s tip, Dr Sarah Jarvis advised hacks such as taking a cold shower before bed, but she advised: “Please don't forget; never put ice directly onto your skin because that can cause ice burns.
“But a cool flannel around your neck, and possibly putting sheets in the freezer, but not again risking any ice burns, can help."
It seems the heat hasn’t been too much of a problem for Adil Ray, however, who revealed he was staying in a hotel with air conditioning.
“Try and get a job with ITV and they'll put you in a hotel with air conditioning.
"If you travel from Birmingham they are required to put you in a hotel it's great,” Adil told Kate and viewers.
What are some other tips you can use to keep cool?
Less is definitely more when when it comes to summer nights.
For this reason, sleeping in loose, soft cotton shirts and lightweight PJs is definitely advised.

Another tip, which Greatist advises, is “applying ice packs or cold compresses to pulse points at your wrists, neck, elbows, groins, and ankles and behind your knees.”
You could also get creative and get a cross-breeze going on inside your room.
This can be achieved by positioning a fan across from a window and the wind from outside will mix with the fan to make a cool cross-breeze. Obviously the more fans the better, but it might get a little noisy.
