Fran Dando is one of the only few people in Britain who suffers from bananaphobia though the 21-year old is forced to handle it because her two year old loves the fruit.

Fran revealed that the phobia started when she was seven years old after finding a banana in her bed which was hidden by her brother.

"I felt this horrible slimy thing. It frightened the life out of me. Suddenly I was hyperventilating and sweating. I was frozen in panic. Ever since then if I see one, the same feeling comes back", she said, adding that she now wears gloves when handling the fruit to give it to her son.
