A man, who suffers from a fear of touching food, said he only eats with metal tongs. He is stared at and laughed at wherever he goes.

John Junior, from Wilmslow, is so afraid of eating with his hands that he always carries metal tongs with him.

The 34-year-old man’s phobia developed a decade ago when he became unwell after eating cooked chicken.

This made him believe that touching food would kill him and others, and he started using cutlery all the time.

But John’s fears spiraled out of control and eventually spiraled out of control in March 2018.

The unexpected death of his father has sent his health anxiety level high, meaning he now only eats with metal tongs.
