Elvis fans are being offered the chance to bid for his hair. The music legend is the main attraction in a Comic Relief auction of celebrity hair. The strands of Presley's hair were collected by a barber who gave him a trim at Graceland in 1973. The star was noted for his jet black locks, but was naturally a dark blonde who dyed it.
Wool from the late cloned sheep, Dolly, and locks donated by Graham Norton, Carol Smillie and Caprice will also be sold in the auction, organised by hair firm Wella.
The auction at www.wella.co.uk begins tomorrow and lasts until March 9. All proceeds go to Comic Relief, for which Wella is one of the official partners.
