Priscilla Presley has revealed that she will never move out of her Beverly Hills home because it reminds her of Elvis - "the love of my life".

The American actress, 70, was married to the King of Rock and Roll in the late 1960s and 1970s and raised their daughter Lisa Marie Presley at her Los Angeles house.

She got divorced from Elvis in 1973, but said the star was the love of her life and the pair remained close friends until he died.

She told Hello! magazine: "Even after our divorce, we remained very good friends. He would come to this house often.

"That's one reason why I can never leave this place - I have too many memories here.

"I have been here since 1973 and I raised both my children here, so it's really hard for me to leave. This is homey and it still feels right for me."

She said Elvis, who died in 1977, was her one great love.

"We were very, very close. I loved him with all my heart, he was the love of my life," she said.

"He was absolutely the love of my life. He was the father of my child and I learned so much from that man.

"I'm not saying that everything was wonderful - marriages have problems, and especially in that rock'n'roll environment ... but we had an amazing bond."
