These are some of the bizarre items left behind in Travelodge rooms

There was a growing trend of travellers checking out with pets, with a cockatoo, fish and two Persian cats left behind.

A cockatoo called Brexit, a glass eye, a five foot tall chocolate Easter bunny and a gallon of water from Loch Ness were among the items left behind in Travelodge hotels last year.

The budget hotel chain said there had been a growing trend of pets being left in rooms, including fish and two Persian cats along with the politically-named bird.

A royal enthusiast from Houston, in the US who was staying at the London City Travelodge had to make a return journey from Heathrow Airport and buy a new airline ticket when she left behind her much treasured Meghan Markle replica wedding dress.

Other unusual items included a bottle of vintage champagne, a chest of semi-precious stones and a Coutts cheque book and account card.

And a cheerleading team in Manchester managed to leave behind a case of pom-poms ahead of a national competition.

Shakila Ahmed, from Travelodge, said: “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.”
