Prepare to lose an hour in bed - British Summer Time is just around the corner.
The clocks go forward 1 hour at 1am on the last Sunday in March in the UK, meaning that the country will revert to British Summer Time on Sunday, March 29 this year.
This results in more daylight in the evenings and less in the mornings and coincides with warmer temperatures.
Smart devices such as phones, computers and televisions should update themselves in order to show the correct time, but others like your car, oven and microwave will need to be adjusted manually.
British Summer Time will last until October 25, when the clocks go back and Greenwich Mean Time begins.
