A self-confessed kebab addict plans to eat 60 in one month.

Des Breakey, 34, will scoff them in just 30 days as part of a "kebabathon" to raise money for charity.

He will take on the challenge for Nerve Tumours UK, a charity which supports his 10-year-old daughter, Manchester Evening News reports.

The dad hopes to raise at least £1,000 for the charity, which works to raise awareness of the rare conditions Neurofibromatosis and Schwannomatosis.

Des, of Newton Heath, Manchester, said: "It’s a charity close to my heart, so hopefully I can help them out."

He added: "I’m a kebabhead. I’m addicted."

The photographer decided to take on the mammoth task after realising his kebab intake was greater than most other fans.

Des, who regularly contributes kebab reviews on a Facebook group, scoffed 39 of the treats in a 28-day period a couple of months ago.

His pals encouraged him to go even further.

He said: "My record is 39 kebabs in 28 days. I had nine in a week and three in one day.

"After that, I thought, I might as well do it properly and do it for charity."

He added: "I’m just psyching myself up.

"I’m not too worried. I have been doing this forever and I’m still standing.

"My last MOT was two years ago and my blood pressure and everything was fine. I’d better do it while I’m young and healthy.

"I’ve been eating kebabs since I was six-years-old and I’m 34 now. I’ve just always been good with spicy food."

Although he has his favourite haunts dotted around Manchester, he plans to visit lots of different places.

He went on: "The perfect kebab, in my opinion, needs quality meat, the bread has to be fresh and made in a clay oven, fresh in-house sauce and fresh salad.

"I will never get sick of kebabs. They feed my soul."

Despite having done a number of charity fundraising events in the past, he has never been tempted to compete in an actual marathon.

He admitted: "I’m not really marathon material.

"I will run to the kebab shop though."
