Someone, somewhere, is missing a set of diamond encrusted false teeth.

They are among the things left behind in Newquay's Travelodge last year.

Other forgotten items at hotels across the country include a pantomime horse, a kitten and, in St Austell, a pocket size copy of the Karma Sutra.

Shakila Ahmed, Travelodge spokeswoman said: “Each year our lost and found departments provide plenty of revelations. From keys to a Bugatti, Harry Potter’s original wand, a micro pig, breast implants to a script from a well know British soap programme, our customers’ left behinds demonstrate what a cross section of people stay in our 527 hotels.

“What is becoming evident after speaking to customers is that the pace of life has become so fast and we are so eager to get from A to B that priceless processions are easily being forgotten.”  

Travelodge has also reported that during the last 12 months, over 20,000 books have been left behind in 38,000 of its hotel rooms. 7,000 of them were Fifty Shades of Grey.

The full list of forgotten possessions that will make you check under the bed next time you stay...

  • A winning EuroMillions ticket
  • Keys to a Bugatti
  • A stamp album worth a quarter of a million pounds
  • A box of 200 Queen Elizabeth masks
  • A valuable set of Olympic tickets
  • A diamond encrusted wedding ring
  • A suitcase of vinyl records
  • A Rolex watch worth £50,000
  • A tiffany engagement ring
  • A pilot’s training manual
  • A Kenwood Magimix worth £600
  • Joseph’s Dream Coat
  • Pantomime Horse
  • 7,000 copies of Fifty Shades of Grey
  • 76,500 teddy bears
