An amazing contraption for over a radiator?

I'm trying to find something to replace a single towel rail over a radiator in our bathroom. There are 5 of us attempting to dry towels and it just isn't working. The best thing I can find is a double towel rail but they look a bit useless. Is there some amazing and sturdy thing I can buy?! We can't replace radiator with a heated towel rail as too pricey at mo. Radiator next to loo so it can't stick out too far either. Am I looking for the impossible?!

What about a row of coat hooks? We have a shelf with hooks underneath, above our bathroom radiator and the towels are fine.

We had coat hooks too.

Worked fine until we changed the rad.

Suspend this from the ceiling. All your prayers answered.

I debated that Herds but our bathroom is tiny (barely fits the bath in there) so there wouldn't be room.
Coat hooks is intriguing, do you mean like on a wooden plank like you put in cloakrooms?

I bought an overdoor hanger thing and bent the over bit.
Was only a pound grin

Would something like this work?

or hanging like this?

Any good?

Ooh some good ideas thank you! I'm actually wondering f maybe a long one on the door might be better, like in your link Swedish. Do you think it would mount on a door? Would towels dry or is over the radiator the only way? I'm not sure if hooks over radiator would work for bigger towels...

Could you not put it in the kitchen? Clothes dry overnight.

The coat hooks are under the shelf, which is a unit with three baskets. I bought it from Argos! They might still have it in the catalogue. The towels hang down over the rad so dry.
