A strand of Elvis Presley’s hair is being sold by Chorley’s on Thursday 25th February 2010. The vendor, who comes from Gloucestershire, is a keen music buff and bought the strand of hair on a whim through a television auction. The strand is estimated to fetch between £400-600.

It is mounted in the centre of a gold disc inscribed ‘The King’s Authentic Hair’, together with a photograph of the singer and a certificate of authenticity on the reverse.
