David Harding, who is an accountant from Greenwich, used to rack up annual bills of over £700 purchasing McWhinney's pork sausages. Harding revealed that the urge to eat at least one sausage a day began when he first ate it when he was just 5 years of age.
He has now spent over £2,000 on hypnotherapy to overcome the condition that sees him eat at least 13 bangers a day. Harding admitted that he has a problem and compared it with drug addiction.
"I genuinely cannot bear the thought of living without sausages. Drug addicts crave their medicine of choice, and it's the same for me - except that my drug is a banger", he said.
