Spokeswoman Shakila Ahmed said: “With nearly 19 million customers annually staying at our 557 UK hotels for a variety of reasons, we do get a range of fascinating items left behind. This year’s audit includes: a brand new ice-cream van, a jilted groom, an amazing Technicolour Dream Coat, a 5ft teddy bear made of popcorn, a blue eyed Cockatoo called Brexit and even a replica of Megan Markel’s wedding dress.

“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.”

She added: “This includes a chest of semi-precious jewels, a rare bottle of vintage champagne, a Coutts cheque book and a 21-year old lucky penny belonging to a CEO. When it comes to why so many customers forget their treasured items, there is one common theme, and that’s living in a fast and furious world. Where time is off the essence especially when getting from A to B and therefore valuable possessions are easily being forgotten.”
