Wigs, fake tans and plenty of hip-shaking attitude swamped the Winter Gardens as Elvis wannabes battled it out to be top (hound) dog.

The second annual Europe’s Tribute to Elvis – the ‘ultimate’ contest dedicated to The King of Rock’n’Roll kicked off yesterday.

The winner will represent Europe in the world finals in Memphis later this year.

This weekend’s events feature themed shows – including some of the world’s best Elvis tribute artists gracing the stage in the The Empress Ballroom.

Organisers say there are also special guests, merchandise stalls, after-show private parties and raffles.

What more could the Elvi of this world want?
