A Hard Day's Wipe

The Beatles once refused to use a toilet roll while recording their world famous Abbey Road album - because they thought it was too 'hard and shiny'.

Proving that even the world's most famous band was not adverse to the odd diva strop, the rock legends rejected the roll during the 1960s as it also had EMI stamped on every sheet.

Their antics came to light after Beatles fan Barry Thomas snapped up the toilet roll at an auction complete with a letter from EMI manager Ken Townsend.

Experts last week told Barry they could not price such an odd object - but he has since been offered £1,000 just for one sheet of the toilet roll.

Barry bought the unique item of memorabilia in 1980 along with a famous picture that had hung at the studio throughout the Beatles' time there.
