Some of North Korea's despotic leader Kim Jong-un's maddest quirks have been revealed – and it turns out the tubby despot is obsessed with British grub.
Not much is known about the 39-year-old's life, other than what he wants us to know.
However, Professor Anthony Glees, a leading expert in defence, security and now the lifestyle habits of war mad world leaders has shed some light on a few of Kim Jong-un's favourite things.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star, the Prof said: “Kim Jong-un is the 36th richest man in the world, and in 2018 took delivery of two special Maybach Mercedes S600s, has 17 palaces, and a private plane.
“And – according to his chef – he is an inveterate boozer, drinks Black Label Scotch whisky and Hennessy Brandy, and a heavy smoker.
“His favourite ciggies being Yves St Laurent black and gold designer jobs at around £50 per pack.
“He is obviously grossly overweight – indeed a nickname for him is 'Pang', "the fat one", but watch out if they catch you calling him that.
“He worships basketball player Michael Jordan, and has painted portraits of him.”
That means that one of the most dangerous men on the planet is a big lover of whiskey that you can nab for £32 at your local Tesco.
And the oddness doesn't stop there, either.
While his father Kim Jong-il was a known lover of donkey meat, Jong-un is partial to massive portions of Parma ham.

Professor Glees continued: “But Kim Jong-un is murderous, not just bonkers.
“He had his security minister executed by flame throwers after an unsuccessful rocket launch, we believe, and in 2016 two officials in the ministry of education were executed by anti-aircraft missiles for dozing off in a meeting.
“He ordered his henchmen to smear the blood of executed officials on his uncle who was said to have passed out with shock before himself being executed.”
North Koreans 'starving to death' as despot Kim Jong-un fixated on nuclear weapons
Completely normal behaviour for a bloke who loves Parma Ham and bang-average whisky – as well as constantly threatening to destroy everyone with nuclear weapons.
“North Korea is armed to the teeth with nukes, missiles, rockets and satellites – some of which appear to work as intended, many of which don't, both equally dangerous to those in the vicinity,” Professor Glees added.
