 Replica of Meghan Markle's wedding dress is among most bizarre items left in travelodge rooms

A royal fan was forced to buy a new airline ticket from Heathrow airport to pick up a priced possession that she left behind. She left a replica of Meghan Markle's wedding dress in a hotel room. The woman was from Houston, Texas and was staying at the London City Travelodge when she left the gown behind.

The gown was a replica of the Givenchy dress by British designer, Clare Waight Keller. It was among the most bizarre items left behind in Travelodge hotels last year.

Other than the gown, a cockatoo called Brexit, a glass eye, a five-foot tall chocolate Easter bunny and a gallon of water from Loch Ness, were also handed into lost property.

The hotel chain revealed that there had been a trend of pets being left behind in rooms, including fish, two Persian cats, and a politically-named bird.

Some of the other unusual items were a bottle of vintage champagne, a chest of semi-precious stones and a Coutts checkbook and account card.

They also revealed that a cheerleading team in Manchester had left behind some pom-poms, ahead of a national competition.

Mirror.co.uk quoted Shakila Ahmed, from Travelodge, saying, "Interestingly as we have more business customers staying with us than ever before, we have seen a rise this year in important business papers, valuable items and lucky charms being left behind in our hotels."
