She said: "Each Monday my son packs his teddy Cuddles in my suitcase so that I have "someone to look after [me]" while I am away in London.

"Cuddles is gifted with pure selfless sincerity and an act I enjoy each week.

"I confess that at the grand age of 46 I cuddle Cuddles like I would if I was four. He is soft, sweet and reminds me of home. He also has the added benefit of acting as a cushion for my poorly sore post lumpectomy boob

"I get home and Cuddles is taken out of my suitcase and given back, although I still sneak in the occasional cuddle with Cuddles. Until now."

The toy in question resembles a white bear and seemingly makes up part of her son Freddie's collection of soft animals and the thread "about love" has sparked a few users to create #FindCuddles.

The MP goes on to explain where the beloved bear was last seen.

She added: "I did not realise until I got home and after frantically contacting the hotel, he remains lost. I do not understand how he could have been missed when stripping a bed but then how did I miss him when packing.

"I have made up some elaborate story about Cuddles going on an adventure. Freddie is fine. Truth is I am not. Because really it was a substitute for cuddles with my boy while I am away.

"And I do not care how old and grown up I am supposed to be I am going to miss that bear."
