The Stone Roses' Mani eats 12 bananas a day

Mani from The Stone Roses has decided to change his lifestyle in order to get fit for the band's upcoming reunion tour by eating 12 bananas a day.

The bassist said: "The moment I heard we'd sold 225,000 tickets an hour I thought 'Bloody hell, I better get myself sorted for this one'.

"I can't believe all this is going on but we've got to prepare big time, so it's bunches of bananas for me for a while now.

"I'd forgotten how good they taste. They're brilliant. I hope they'll do the trick and get the old fitness levels sorted for me."
