Frank Bruno hopes to help youngsters defeat mental health issues by writing series of children's books

BOXING legend Frank Bruno is hoping to hit the top of the bestsellers list by writing a series of children’s books.

The former heavyweight World Champion — who has suffered ­bipolar disorder since retiring in 1996 — aims to help youngsters defeat mental health problems.

His Worried Frank series follows the story of a little boy who finds himself suffering from anxiety and depression.

Dad-of-four Frank, 59, said: “Reading is a great way of connecting directly to kids and this could help loads of children going through a rough time.

“People will notice that little Frank has some of my traits which will hopefully raise a smile with parents reading it to their children.

“I’m not sure I’m as good as David Walliams but I’m looking forward to giving it a good go!”

Frank plans to release the books, co-written with cartoonist Simon Hetherton, next year.
