Burning Questions: Do you have a favourite side of the bed? Where does 'wrong side of the bed' phrase come from?

News Shopper: Is there a particular side of the bed you always sleep on? Is there a particular side of the bed you always sleep on?

When you got up this morning was it from the same side of the bed you always sleep on?

Today we’re asking, regardless of whether you’re a singleton or in a couple, if you are stuck in your ways and have a particular side of the bed.

Previous research on the subject by a hotel company found three-quarters of people do have a favourite side and would find it strange to sleep on the other side of the bed. It was also found that, apparently, sleeping on the left makes you more cheerful and positive.

Do you have a favourite side of the bed you prefer sleeping on? And do you think there is such a thing as the wrong side of the bed?

Speaking of, do you have any idea about where the phrase ‘get up on the wrong side of the bed’ comes from?
