This week’s item is Elvis’  underwear - Unwashed and still soiled with stains – which were worn beneath one of Presley's famous white jumpsuits during a performance in 1977.

The undergarments will go to auction with a selection of other memorabilia from the King in Stockport, Greater Manchester, next month.
