The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer has topped a new poll from a hotel chain with Coldplay and Snow Patrol all featuring.

Adele has been named as the most listened to artist when falling asleep according to a new survey.

The study was conducted by hotel chain firm Travelodge who spoke to 2,000 people about which artists they like to hear last thing at night.

The '21' star was followed closely by Coldplay – who themselves topped the firm's last polls back in 2008 and 2010.

Snow Patrol and One Direction also featured in the top five of the survey.

Edinburgh Sleep Centre expert Stevie Williams said: "Results from various sleep studies undertaken with a variety of male and female groups, has indicated that listening to soft, relaxing music at bedtime leads to a number of different benefits to a night's sleep."

A spokeswoman for the Travelodge group added: "After a long stressful day it's essential that you de-stress to aid sleep and listening to music will help focus your attention and assist your body and mind to relax." 

Meanwhile, Adele is rumoured to be struggling to get to sleep herself after reports claim she has given birth to a baby boy last month.

The news is yet to be confirmed by the singer or partner Simon Konecki – although TV comedian Alan Carr said he has seen the couple's new arrival but are yet to decide the name of their child.
