5ive In A Bed


Which member of Five sleeps naked? Who had a rude dream last night? What does Scott get up to in the wee hours? Join us on a midnight raid of pop's most Rock'N'Roll house to uncover the truth...

Who does 'strange things' in the their sleep?
Abs:
Scott sleepwalks. He's weird man. He comes to your door about four in the morning and goes, 'Eeeorrr!' and then goes back to bed.
Scott: The other month I ended up in J and Rich's room shouting, 'The list! We can't forget the list!'
J: Rich babbles on for hours!
Sean: He snores like a pig too.
Rich: Oi!

Do you play tricks on each other during the night?
Rich:
I fell asleep on the sofa once and woke up to find a whole bottle of conditioner tipped on my head. I went upstairs to run a bath and while my back was turned they'd chucked all the rubbish from our bin in the water.
J: I really freaked Sean out one night. I crept into his room wearing my boxers, a horrible leather waistcoat and an old World War II gas mask. He shot bolt upright in his bed and screamed like a girl.

Are you scared of the dark?
Abs:
I used to believe in the Bogeyman and when I was six I saw him! One night I heard this noise outside my bedroom. I went to investigate and saw this black shadow with a big cloak! It was trying to grab me!
J: I'm a light sleeper so it has to be pitch black when I go to bed.

Would you ever wear an eye mask?
J:
No way!
Rich: I would! My mum gave me one a couple of years ago. I was having real trouble sleeping 'cause of this bright street lamp outside our house.
Abs: They look stupid! It's noisy enough in our house to wear earplugs, but I don't like them. Too waxy.
Scott: I used to wear one when I was younger 'cause I thought it was really cool. My mum made me a special ThunderCats one.

Where's the weirdest place you've ever had to sleep?
J:
Behind a phone box. It's a long story.
Scott: I sleep everywhere. The other day I curled up on the floor of the studio in a pile of bags. It was so comfy.
Sean: I've slept in fields before. Me mum would get really annoyed when I came back covered in grass stains.
Rich: Eurgh! Didn't you worry about wood lice and spiders crawling up your nose?
Sean: Nah, I used to eat woodlice. I'd pop 'em in my mouth and tell me mum I was keeping them warm.

Have you ever had the lights knocked out of you?
Abs:
Yeah, I fell off a swing and was out for a whole minute.
Rich: I had a right go at this guy for smoking on a bus. He followed me home, punched me in the face and knocked me unconscious. When I came round my mates just said, 'Blimey, Richard can take a beating!'
Sean: Me and my mates were 'garden hopping', you know when you run through people's gardens jumping over fences. There was seven of us in a line and this huge kid didn't want to go last so he picked me up and chucked me over. I was blacked-out for ages.

How many rude dreams do you have a week?
J:
If I've been around lots of ladies then I'll probably have dirty dreams every night.
Rich: I never remember my dreams, I've been so tired lately.
Scott: I had one last night about this girl I'd never met. She was drawing a pattern on my belly and it led on from there!
J: Hey, I had one about Esther Rantzen. We snogged too. Ugh!

Talking of snogging, where's you favorite place to smooch with a young lady?
Rich:
A Jacuzzi! (Saucy!)
Scott: On the sofa at home. I'll fix her a drink and say, 'Kick your shoes off'. She'd say, 'No! My feet smell!' or 'It's too cold'. Girls always whinge at me.
Sean: I'm not fussy so long as it's vaguely private. I don't like snogging in the middle of the street.
Abs: Parking up by the beach is nice. If you're in a convertible you can lie back and watch the stars.

And finally, do you turn the lights out before a smooch?
Abs:
No, but I close my eyes so it's more passionate and gentle.
Rich: Yeah it's a bit weird staring into someone's eyes while you snog.
Scott: I'm the same but sometimes I have a quick peek to check that they've got their eyes closed too. If they haven't I get moody.
Sean: Well, do you know what? Lights on or lights off, I'll do anything, me!
All: Wa-hey!

So tell us, what do Five wear in bed?
Abs & Scott:
Boxer shorts.
Rich: Me too. I love snuggling up under my quilt.
J: I go nude! Except when me and Rich shared a room - it wouldn't be nice for him to see me lying there naked.
Sean: I'd never go naked - it's too odd. I even wore Rich's tartan pyjama bottoms last night, I was that desperate!
