In classic British fashion, pretty much all we've done for the past week is talk about the weather.

It's BLOODY HOT and we'll say so, thank you very much.

One of the worst parts of a heatwave is trying to sleep at night. You can have all the fans blasting during the day, but if you can't stand the noise at night or you just don't have one, it can be a challenge trying to get a good night's kip.

Thankfully Amazon may well have the answer.

Amazon customers have been raving about the site's gel pillows, hailing them the only reason why they've been able to sleep this summer.

They measure 30X40cm and so they're absolutely perfect for slipping under your pillow for a cool night's sleep.

For maximum coolness, reviews say you can stick them in the freezer before using. Sounds like BLISS.
