The tenant from hell cheerfully referred to the black bananas as “his magic sauce” when he was caught preparing the savoury dish – doubtless one of his five-a-day – at the property in Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset.

The stench of the unidentified man’s well-done chocolate channel chewies nauseated his three flatmates – one of whom had already been so freaked out by his antics that she slept on a friend’s sofa most nights even before he resorted to eating his own tangy butt-nuts.

The anonymous woman told the Mirror: “He moved in and it was all fine for a month. He was leaving one day and there was an awful smell in the kitchen so I went in and checked it out.

“I checked the bin and I opened the oven because he had put some food in there and you could see a pasty filled with poo. I was horrified. I just puked up. I was heaving.”

When she questioned him the foul flatmate referred to it as his “magic sauce”.

The woman said: “It was definitely poo. He took it out and he ate it. How could we be expected to cook in that kitchen after that.?”

The tenant has now been evicted by housing charity Chapter 1, who described the incident as “very unfortunate”.
