A tooth and a lock of hair belonging to Elvis Presley have been put up for auction on internet site EBAY - and the seller wants a staggering $100,000 (GBP62,500).

As well as the hair and tooth - which have been on display in a Florida hair salon since 1992 - the lucky bidder will get a gold-plated copy of the King Of Rock'n'Roll's hit LOVE ME TENDER.

According to Britain's LONDON EVENING STANDARD newspaper, the owners are reluctantly selling the memorabilia because they can no longer afford to insure them.
