THE A-TEAM star Mr T is bouncing back to great health after being diagnosed with rare T-cell lymphoma thanks to a greasy chicken breakfast and peanut butter.

The 51-year-old star insists his odd diet is helping him build up his strength as he continues to beat cancer.

He says, "I eat a whole rotisserie chicken for breakfast every day. It's nice and moist from the health food store.

"Later, I have a peanut butter sandwich with a banana and some apple sauce. All that helps to get me through the day."

Mr T, who is no longer undergoing chemotherapy, says his diet has got him feeling so good that he'd like to jump back in the ring with Sylvester Stallone if the movie star ever gets another planned Rocky movie off the ground.
