Travelodge reveals the 'weirdest things' left in their rooms during 2016

Budget hotel chain, Travelodge recently revealed a list of bizarre items that have been left behind in their rooms throughout 2016. A gold portrait of Elvis Presley, a barrister's wig and keys to mansion in India were all reportedly left behind in its 525 hotels across the country.

One customer who was staying in the Harrogate Travelodge travelled 40 minutes down the M62 before realising that they'd left behind their Shih Tzu named Harold, while a housekeeper in Dundee found a family of three generations gnomes in one bedroom.

Without further ado, here is the list of the bizarre items that were left behind in the hotel chain's properties throughout 2016:
