X Factor supremo Simon Cowell gets left behind in British hotel rooms more often then any other celebrity, it has emerged.
A new study from Travelodge has found that biographies about the famous music producer are the most commonly discarded books in hotel rooms around the UK.
Not far behind ‘he-of-the-high-waistband’ in this regard are another set of ITV stalwarts in Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, whose autobiography Ooh! What A Lovely Pair proved a less-than-riveting read for hotel users around the country.
Other titles commonly left behind include those from Stieg Larsoon’s massive-selling Millennium Trilogy and those from Stephanie Meyer’s much-loved Twillight Saga.
“In the last 12 months we have had over 20,000 books left behind in our 452 hotels. Interestingly this year more thriller books have been left behind in Travelodge hotels than ever before,” said Shakila Ahmed from the firm behind the research.
“Celebrity biographies have maintained their position within the forgotten books index but we have seen a big decline in ‘Chicklit’ books being left behind by customers. It seems Britons want a thrilling mystery in their lives.”
Other noteworthy findings from Travelodge’s study include the fact that hotel rooms in central London, Cardiff and Edinburgh were the most likely to be left with random books about business, while those in Newcastle, Edinburgh and Leeds were most prone to having extra copies of the Karma Sutra.
