An Eastbourne woman who uses her spare bedroom as a dressing room has been chosen as a finalist in the UK’s messiest bedroom competition.

Rebecca James is one of ten shortlisted in the search for the UK’s messiest bedroom.

Online bed retailer,, ran the competition to find the UK bedroom most in need of a clear-out.

The owner of the winning room will be named, shamed and gifted a storage bed of their choice up to the value of £500.

Rebecca, 23 and a customer service supervisor, was awarded her place as a finalist after entering this picture of her bedroom chaos into the competition.

Local residents are being invited to support Rebecca by pledging their vote on Facebook to help the judges choose who deserves the messiest bedroom crown.

Rebecca lives with her partner but the spare room is just for her mess.

She said, “It’s my “dressing room” - I have this so my partner doesn’t have to put up with my mess - can you spot our kitten?”

Jonathan Warren, owner of, said, “We’re all guilty of being a bit messy sometimes, but this competition has really opened our eyes to a whole new world of disarray.

“We were inundated with entries so it’s been extremely difficult picking our finalists, but Rebecca’s room was one that really caught our eye.

“We hope the people of Eastbourne will get involved and support Rebecca as it’s clear she is in need of some additional space to help organise her mess.”
