For those of us still dealing with this stupidity. Eyeroll

What time do the clocks go back tonight - and why do they still change?

This Sunday - October 29 - at 2am, the UK reverts to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) by going back one hour, to 1am. This marks the official end of British summertime. A clever way to remember the hour-change rule is "Spring forward, Fall back".

Relish those extra 60 minutes in bed. The mornings will also be lighter, however the evenings will be darker.

And bear the event in mind when making plans for the day: despite the prevalence of smartphones and other devices which alter the time for you automatically, there will always be one person you know who didn't get the memo.

Yeah, the UK goes back to GMT/UTC/Zulu time - not sure about other countries but I think Western Europe change daylight saving time at the same time...
