A creepy-crawly connoisseur from Manchester has told the papers that he can’t stop eating bugs morning, noon and night.


Peter Bickerton started off blending locusts with beef to make burgers. But he found the insects were so delicious he stopped mixing in meat altogether.


A mix of locusts, grasshoppers and waxworms are now on the 24-year-old's menu every day.  


Naturally, we went on the internet to look for bug recipes. Would you try any of these?
