There’ll be no need to have to muffle your voice as if you have come down with a cold or try and persuade a friend or relative to do so, Magners have it covered. They will take the names and numbers of your superiors and give them a reason, including “the dog at his shoes” or “her toe’s trapped in the bath tap”.

Paul Condron of Magners said: “Summer’s not long enough at the best of times – but this year it’s officially two days shorter than the year before, so we can’t afford to waste a moment of it.

“It takes the stress out of putting in that phone call yourself – but we can’t guarantee that your boss will be happy when you go back to work on Tuesday.”

The Seize the Summer hotline – 07956635876 – is open from 6am until noon.
