She Tweeted: ‘Not even joking you. Sleep paralysis is the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced.’

Fans were quick to sympathise, with responses including: ‘Horrible isnt it 😣😣😣 I’ve had it a few times where you try to scream but no sound and you can’t move 😥,’ and: ‘I’ve had it the last two nights after not having it for a long time. It’s so scared like being trapped x [sic].’

According to the NHS, sleep paralysis is a temporary inability to move or speak that occurs when you’re waking up or falling asleep.

It’s not harmful and should pass in a few seconds or minutes, but as Megan knows, it can be very frightening.

Megan’s clearly been struggling with her sleep quite a bit over the past few days.

Earlier in the evening, she’d bemoaned on her page: ‘Why was I falling asleep on the sofa and now I’m in bed I’m wide awake 😩😩😩 the struggles.’

And last night, she wrote: ‘I am beyond tired it’s a joke. I just want a good night sleep 😩😩😩.’

She has received some advice from followers. One suggested: ‘Himalayan bath salts in a bath before bed will do the trick,’ while another offered: ‘Meditation will help, try going to sleep whilst listening to an app, it’s stopped mine @ helped with stress.’

Fingers crossed you sleep better tonight, lady.
