A 21-year-old children's worker is so scared of bananas that she has been diagnosed as suffering from bananaphobia.
The fear is so great that she gives the fruit aisle a wide berth while in the supermarket and sometimes has to leave the room if there happen to be any bananas present.
The 21-year-old children’s worker suffers from bananaphobia, an overwhelming fear of the yellow fruit. ‘It began when I was seven and my brother put a banana in my bed as a joke,’ said Ms Dando, from Hastings, East Sussex.
