Women are grumpier than men in the morning, a survey has found.

The report, which confirms what many men have long believed, adds insult to injury by saying women also stay in a bad mood for longer.

The survey by The Sleep Council, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of good sleep, found 24 per cent of men say they never wake up grumpy, as opposed to only 14 per cent of women.

It also found that 13 per cent of women stayed in a bad mood for two to four hours, compared to 10 per cent of men.

The survey, published ahead of National Sleep In Day on October 29 - the day the clocks go back and Britons get an extra hour in bed - revealed 41 of respondents believe lack of sleep is the main reason for being cranky in the morning.

The Sleep Council's Jessica Alexander said women's grumpiness could perhaps be explained by the quality of sleep they were getting.

"As men appear to sleep better than women, perhaps it's not surprising that more women than men get out of bed on the wrong side," she said.

"It also tends to be them that prepares the breakfast, spends time with the children, check their emails and attend to their beauty regime.

"Women far outweigh men in having a busy and packed morning."
