Elvis' stained underwear heads to auction
Stained under garments owned by Elvis are going up for auction in Manchester next month.

The light blue pair of men's underwear features a suspicious yellow mark on the front of the crotch and is believed not to have been washed since the famous crooner removed them in 1977 during one of his performances.

BBC News reports that the pants are expected to make around £10,000 on September 8th when they go under the hammer at the Elvis memorabilia auction in Stockport.

The underwear originates from the estate of Vernon Presley, Elvis' father and joins other keepsakes such as the singer's bible, which is forecasted to encourage bids of around £25,000.

Home videos owned by Elvis and his wife Priscilla are included in the lot, with footage of the couple's wedding, family holidays and even the moment they brought their daughter Lisa-Marie home from hospital.

The 35th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley was recently marked by a candlelit vigil in Graceland, which was attended by an estimated 75,000 fans.
