LORD OF THE RINGS star Orlando Bloom has discovered the downside of his extensive travels around the world - his London home is now packed full of bizarre souvenirs.

The actor, who has barely spent any time at his apartment, fears the day he returns to English capital for a lengthy stay, because he has boxes of trinkets to dig through.

He says, "Wherever I lay my hat at the moment (is my home). I do have a place in London, but I've spent about three weeks there in the past four years.

"I just keep sending boxes back and I'm terrified to go back and open 'em. You know when you go on vacation and you buy things and you're like, 'Oh, that would look really great in the house,' and then you get it home and it's like, 'What was I thinking?' I'm doing a lot of that."
