Pitt: top of the tuckers-up

A survey by Hilton in the USA found that 28% of its customers wanted to be tucked up at night by the handsome Pitt, with Irish bad-boy actor Colin Farrell, buxom ex-Baywatch beauty Carmen Electra and film stars Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman following close behind.

But if employing Pitt is impossible, the survey also offers a range of tips to help keep guests returning. Having phone chargers available could capture their loyalty, as 31% said they usually forgot theirs. Toothpaste and razors were the next on the list of most-forgotten items, with 19% and 21% of respondents leaving them behind.

In hotel bedrooms, more than half of guests (54%) said they wanted bottled water available, while 10% said a vodka and tonic would do nicely.
