Keys, passport, wallet - a check-list most of us go through when going on holiday.

Your stamp collection, Persian Chinchilla kitten, bucket of live crabs and a Kenwood Magimix - less so.

Today, the UK’s very first budget hotel chain, Travelodge, announced the mysterious objects left behind in its 527 hotels during 2012.

On the list of bizarre items left behind is a set of false teeth encrusted with diamonds - left at Newquay's Seafront Travelodge.

The St Austell Travelodge boasted a left-behind pocket-sized Karma Sutra book.

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."

Here's a taste of the other strange items left behind:

• 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 trunk of chocolate bars

• A diamond encrusted wedding ring

• A Persian Chinchilla kitten worth £600

• A suitcase of vinyl records

• A set of false teeth with diamonds

• 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

    My cynical mind tells me that this is just a brilliant piece of New Year PR. Sorry, but I just don't buy it. Where are the photos of the booty (76,500 teddies excepted - which funnily enough I CAN believe - but not all at the same time...) - c'mon Travelodge - show us a picture!

    7,000 copies of 50 Shades of Grey?? Presumably a very successful book salesperson. The one I love is the Euromillions Ticket.....now was that worth £2.70 or £1,000,000? 76,500 teddy bears????? Can you actually get that many in a room and how the hell would someone forget that lot.....must have been on something very strong the previous night eh?
