Has Gordon Brown gone bananas?

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown

Prime Minister Gordon Brown is reported to wolf down NINE bananas every day!

He's got a big election campaign coming up in the next few months, and they reckon he's trying to shape-up for it.

The Sun newspaper said his wife Sarah got him to ditch his favourite treats, Kit Kats, in favour of the healthy fruit snack.

Gordon Brown's spokesman said "portions of fruit and veg taken on a daily basis can only lead to good health and radiance".
