Elizabeth Hurley sleeps with her dogs every night.

The 45-year-old actress - who is married to Indian textile heir Arun Nayar - revealed her pet pooches sleep "on top" of her, and she kisses them good morning before she even greets her husband.

She explained: "The first thing I do when I wake up is kiss my dogs. All of whom sleep on top of me. Living in the country means I try to walk or run with the dogs every day. I have three Labradors and a Spaniel, all of whom are a lot fitter than me."

Although the brunette beauty - who dated actor Hugh Grant for 13 years - may show more affection to her dogs than her husband most days, she admits dancing with Arun at their 2007 wedding was so romantic it reduced her to tears.

She added to Tatler magazine: "Dancing with my husband for the first dance at our wedding was the most romantic moment of my life. Elton John sang and I sobbed."
