A room of Elvis impersonators fled from the charity fundraiser they were attending when a fire alarm went off.

The group of 60 lookalikes of The King dashed from the hotel function, after a faulty smoke machine set off the alarm on Saturday night, it was reported.

The scene was played out to the amusement of other guests at the hotel in Rochester, Kent, who were stunned to see a group of around 60 wigged and rhinestone-clad Elvises gathered in the car park.

“I was in a bit of a state getting out of my room,” one guest told the Daily Mirror. “But I was more confused when I got outside to see all these people dressed as Elvis.

“There were people in full Elvis jumpsuits and wigs standing by a roundabout, looking a bit worse for the wear.”

The Elvis lookalikes were taking part in a fancy dress fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support at the Holiday Inn.

The Elvis tribute night was due to feature a charity raffle, late night disco and live entertainment, for which the smoke machine was used.

Around 250 people attended the event, which hosted musical acts from rock and roll singer Mark Keeley and Elvis impersonator Lee Jackson.

Kevin Coombes, hotel manager at the Holiday Inn, told the Mirror: “A smoke machine set off the fire alarm and at no point was anyone in any danger – but yes, Elvis did leave the building.”
