Gordon Ramsay's book makes top 10 reads left in hotel rooms by guests

The literary works of Alistair Campbell, Piers Morgan and Jordan were the most readily discarded books in Travelodge rooms this summer, the budget hotel group revealed today.

A review of Travelodge's "book left behinds" leaves The Blair Years, a detailed diary of Campbell's experience as Tony Blair's press secretary, strategist and trusted confidant, topping the charts.

In second place is ex-Mirror editor Morgan's diary on modern celebrity life Don't You Know Who I Am?

Jordan, aka Katie Price, has made third place with her second book A Whole New World in which she reveals all about her romance with Peter Andre.

Gordon Ramsay's Humble Pie sneaks in at number eight.

Jason Cotta, operations director at Travelodge, said: "This review always gives us a good idea of what is going on in consumers' minds during the summer holidays.

"Clearly celebrity status is what we all want to know about, and Alistair Campbell's diaries were bound to intrigue."

The top 10 reads left behind in Travelodge hotels this summer:

1. The Blair Years, Alistair Campbell
2. Don't You Know Who I am, Piers Morgan
3. A Whole New World, Jordan
4. Wicked, Jilly Cooper
5. Dr Who Creatures & Demons, Justin Richard
6. The Diana Chronicles, Tina Brown
7. I Can Make You Thin, Paul McKenna
8. Humble Pie, Gordon Ramsay
9. The Story Of A Man And His Mouth, Chris Moyles
10. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, J.K Rowling
