    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?
