If you or your partner snore, you’ll no doubt know what a pest it can be. Whether you’re the one tired and suffering with a sore throat come morning, or the one kept up all night by your snoring partner, snoring does no good for anyone involved. And with 45% of adults snoring at least occasionally, it’s absolutely a problem that needs to be tackled. Leave the old wives’ tales to one side and join Dr. Pixie Mckenna as she goes through the ins and outs of snoring with her expert panel.

Pixie chats the causes of snoring and prevention techniques with Mike Dilkes, a leading ENT laser surgeon. Also on the guest panel, are Sophie and Dorian Trott, a couple who know all there is to know about the trials and tribulations of snoring. Ever since pregnancy, Sophie has been a snorer. Dorian, on the other hand, has been tired. They add to the conversation with their experiences of snoring, techniques they’ve tried, and whether their next step is to consider surgery.
