Former royal cop Paul Page told how Andrew would be furious if housekeepers at his private apartment laid them out wrongly.

Global Tech News Daily

On ITV documentary Ghislaine, Prince Andrew And The Paedophile last night, he said of Andrew’s bed: “It had about 50 or 60 stuffed toys positioned and there was a card in a drawer. It was a picture of these bears all in situ. The reason for the laminated picture was that if those bears weren’t put back in the right order by the maids, he would shout and scream.”

But embarrassing as this revelation may be for Andrew as he faces a sex-abuse lawsuit, 44 per cent of adults STILL snuggle up to baby toys. Although few would have a fit if they were put slightly ear about paw.

With the help of psychologist Jo Hemmings, we match toys to personality types and hear from readers, and celebs, who still sleep with theirs.

RHYS is proud to show off best buddy Tigger – still with plenty of bounce, though very worn – having travelled the world with the Hereford lad.

The 23-year-old says: “It’s hard for me to find a picture from my childhood without Tigger in it. Mum was constantly washing and mending him.

“He has been with me everywhere, from Canada to Hawaii, and met the real-life Tigger at Disneyland. I even had a toy passport for him.

“Holding him brings back memories. As kids, we found it soothing. That never goes. Tigger is cool and any girlfriend I have has to love him too. Anyone who thinks it’s uncool to have an old childhood toy is missing out.”

MUSICIAN Joanne and husband Richard, a coffee machine engineer, share a bedroom with her stuffed toy Doggy and also his, Huggy.

Mum Joanne, 49, says: “When I first met Huggy I was jealous. Who can compete with a childhood toy? Richard does get huffy over Doggy. Tthere are times I deny him a cuddle in favour of Doggy.

“And bedroom fun has to wait until I have had my destress time with Doggy. When it’s date night, the toys cover their eyes with their paws.”

Richard, 40, says: “I thought Joanne would think it odd for a man to have a childhood toy. Then when I saw her bedroom, I knew I’d have to marry her because she had Doggy.”

PHIL does not mind being ribbed about his ted, Winston. The dad of three and stepdad of four has been attached to the treasured toy since the age of three.

The 51-year-old builder, from Falmouth, Cornwall, says: “He has been a faithful companion – getting into as many scrapes as me. I’ve sewn him up twice.

“He has been dragged through mud, covered in food, dunked in the toilet, ended up in the sea while fishing and covered in sawdust from a building job. He has seen it all. I don’t let my kids or step-grandchildren play with him.

“My missus thinks it’s hilarious. But Winston is as important to me as football, beer, building and fishing.”

Channelling your inner tiger or tigress, it is a statement to toy

ONE of the sexiest of cuddly toys, it says a lot about you, especially if it is large and sleek and lying on your bed.

Blanket: CHILDISH

THERE are throw-type blankets of course, which do not have much sentimental value but blend with bedroom decor.

There are blankets we once used as precious comforters as babies. Better to put it and its memories under the bed, not on it.

Prince Andrew’s servants had sketch of exactly where his five teddy bears needed to be positioned on his bed
