"If you light the end of the spaghetti stick on the hob, that way you can light an awkward candle without burning your fingers of melting your nails."

Ferne also likes to use office staple bulldog clips to organise wires and chargers, or squeeze last drop out of toothpaste.

She said: “Life has become so unnecessarily complicated, especially as a mum, I always try my best to keep things super simple.

"Being mum to a two-year-old means those precious moments to myself are few and far between.

"One of my favourite ways of enjoying some me-time is unwinding in front of the telly, I love getting stuck into a good drama!”

Ferne's tips come as new research reveals Brits are yearning for a simpler life with 68 percent saying life is unnecessarily complicated these days.

Like Ferne many of us enjoy watching TV to unwind, however it’s not always as easy as it should be, with the research revealing a fifth of Brits spend an average of 24 minutes a day finding the right one out their five remotes.
