Any ideas pls? Keep finding them around the sink in my bedroom. Drivin me nuts
They are weevils, a type of beetle.
Can't really tell which from your photo (there are hundreds of species in the UK).
However a couple of possibilities for a domestic situation are Rice Weevil (Sitophilus oryzae) and Grain or Granary Weevil (Sitophilus granarius) - http://www.kendalluk.com/domest.htm.
Maybe you have wallpaper near your sink; the adhesive may contain starch, which those weevils could be feeding on as a substitute for their usual grain; just guessing.
