Matalan is going to pay one person’s heating bill for a whole year

There’s something very satisfying about wrapping yourself in dressing gown and slippers to enjoy a cosy night in watching the latest big TV drama. If that sounds like your ideal evening, Matalan might have a job just for you.

The brand is looking for a dressing gown tester to try out a range of designs, rating their style, fit and of course, how warm they are. The lucky winner will get four dressing gowns to try over four weeks, which you’ll get to keep.


Current options in Matalan’s comfortable nightwear collection include everything from a lighter red floral dressing gown for £14, to a cosy pink overhead robe for £18 or a long navy soft touch dressing gown for £25. Although the exact products the winner will be trying out are still under wraps, expect similarly snug products.

Once the job is complete, you’ll be rewarded with even more prizes to say thank you.

The star prize is that Matalan will pay your heating bill for a year, which comes just a week after the news that bills are set to soar by over 50% from April, so it could be a huge saving.


The winner will receive a cash payment of £1338, based on figures from Ofgem on the average energy bill.

Other gifts include a large throw blanket, slippers, candles and a duvet and pillowcase set to keep you warm right through until spring.

Those who are UK residents aged 18 and over can enter for a chance to win, by filling in the form on the Matalan website.

The competition opened on 1 February and will close at midnight on 21 February, with the winner drawn at random the next day and notified by 24 February.
