We've all seen many a sleep remedy over the years, but Monaghan man Gerry McBride has a bizarre sounding solution that really works and he joined Mairead on the show to tell her all about it.

After watching Nigella Lawson use banana peels to make a curry, Gerry was reminded of his own unusual use of bananas as a sleep aid.

Gerry loves a fad, but this one proved to be very useful and he says it "would lay you out like asphalt". All you need to do is slice up bananas with the skin still on, put in a cup and cover with boiling water, then let it steep for a few minutes.

How does it taste you ask? It tastes like wet banana, but the serotonin and magnesium found in bananas aids sleep so it might just be worth it!
