Elvis' hair sale

A lock of hair belonging to the late 'Jailhouse Rock' hitmaker, which was believed to have been obtained by his personal barber Homer Gill Gilleland, was a huge hit at a Catawiki auction and was snapped up for the large sum forty years after the singer's death.

Mark Borgman, a worker at the auction, told the Metro newspaper: ''For fans and super-fans of music icons, there is the assumption that if you own a lock of hair that once belonged to someone famous, you would feel like you own a part of them forever.''
