THE King's briefs are to go on sale at an auction of Elvis Presley memorabilia.

Unwashed and still soiled with stains, Presley's underpants were worn beneath one of his famous white jumpsuits during a performance in 1977.

The light-blue dance briefs are expected to fetch up to £10,000 when they go under the hammer next month at the auction in Stockport, Cheshire.

Elvis did not want any lines visible while he was on stage wearing his vast array of dazzling jumpsuits and this pair of underpants was obtained from the estate of Vernon Presley, Elvis's father.

Presley died 35 years ago this month and there is expected to be a lot of interest from his fans around the world.
