Do a reset (Hold Sleep/Wake and Home buttons about 10 secs or more till Apple logo appears, ignore the Slide to Power Off that appears)
Note: You will not lose any data.

if it doesnt work with other fixes:
to continue using the device, turn on asssistive touch in settings/general/accessability/assistive touch
tap the white dot in the corner, you can simulate the home button from there, i think there is a lock button there too.
To get to settings you need to have multitasking guestures on and do a 4 finger swipe.
try cleaning the button with a soft cloth, there might just be some dirt in there.

Thanks ckuan. My (not even one year old) iphone 5's home button started playing up really badly yesterday - had to press very hard about 5 times everytime for it to do anything.
I just did a hard reset as per your suggestion and it seems to have fixed the issue - am a happy person again now!
