There's nothing more frustrating than being kept awake all night by a snoring partner.

While there are a number of different tricks and remedies to help sort the problem, one expert has revealed how to stop your partner snoring using a pillow.

James Leinhardt, founder and CEO of Levitex pillows and mattresses, took to TikTok where he explained how your pillow can affect your snoring habits.

You can watch below:

In the video, he joked: "There are two ways to stop your partner snoring. Option one is smothering them, option two is get your partner to lie on their side and buy them a pillow that lifts their head off the bed keeping their neck nice and neutral in line with the rest of the spine."

Other TikTokers were quick to comment on the clip, with many discussing their anti-snoring methods.

One person wrote: "I do a little jump so the mattress wobbles and it sorts him out long enough for me to get to sleep, but I guess I could try your way."

While another said: "I pinch his nose so he wakes up slightly and adjusts his position."

And a third added: "He fights his pillow in the night!! Screws it up in a ball and lays on the mattress! I'm stuck with snoring forever."

While a fourth commented: "My husband snores on every side that he sleeps."

According to the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association, 41.5 per cent of the UK population snore - and the biggest culprits are males, who are also louder snorers than women.

Some 58 percent of those who snore are aged between 50-59 years old.

According to the NHS, snoring is caused by things such as your tongue, mouth, throat or airways in your nose vibrating as you breathe.

They explain: "It happens because these parts of your body relax and narrow when you're asleep. You're more likely to snore if you: are overweight, smoke, drink too much alcohol, sleep on your back."

We previously told you how one man came up with a rather bizarre way to reduce his partner's snoring - by licking her face.

Sharnie, 19 had no idea her boyfriend Jason had been licking her as she slept, instead dismissing her wet face as due to dribbling. But the truth came out when she was sleeping over at a friend's house and was kept awake by her pal talking in her sleep.
