A porn star who shares her name with Apple's friendly assistant Siri can't avoid people telling her dirty jokes.

The adult film actress took questions on Q&A site Quora and moaned that she is bombarded by filthy stories of what people have asked their phones, in private. She said: "I hear jokes pretty much constantly about whatever dirty thing someone said to Siri on their iPhone, pretending they were talking to me, and everyone who jokes about this thinks they're incredibly clever and the first person to do so". The actress, 27, from Minnesota in the USA explained her name is Sigrid, which is common in the Scandinavian countries of Norway and Sweden.

New research by Quaker Oats has found that worn-out workers admit they don't feel ready to face the day until 9:40 a.m. on the average weekday.

According to the Quaker #SuperStart survey, 90 per cent operate on autopilot most mornings and seven out of 10 commute to work in a 'zombie state'.

Off the back of these findings, 'Strictly Come Dancing' judge Darcey Bussell has joined forces with porridge brand Quaker Oats to get Britain off to a super start. She said: "Feeling fully awake can be particularly tough on cold, wintery mornings. I believe in getting active and off to a good start by making time for a nutritious breakfast, which is why I am supporting the 'Quaker Super Start' campaign. As a dancer, my whole life has been about balance. Now I weigh up work and home, being active and taking easy steps to enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle. I find the best way to get off to the best start and keep that goodness going, whatever I'm doing during the day, is a bowl of tasty Quaker porridge oats - particularly warming at this time of year!"
