Multi-Millionaire John Terry's Mum Has New Job... In Pie 'N' Mash Shop

Chelsea captain John Terry leaves Westminster Magistrates' Court, London, where he is on trial accused of racially abusing fellow footballer Anton Ferdinand.

Her son is rich and famous beyond most people's wildest dreams, but she makes ends meet by serving up jellied eels in a pie 'n' mash shop. Who is she? Sue Terry, mum of the multi-millionaire Chelsea and England star John Terry.

Sue, 55, works full-time behind a counter that proudly displays a signed photo of the Chelsea superstar in his kit.

A friend told The Sun: "Sue enjoys earning a living the honest way without a helping hand from John. Good on her for getting on with earning a crust."

According to the paper, her £150,000-a-week son - skipper of Chelsea and a former England captain - is understood to know about her working at Stokemoores Traditional Pie 'n' Mash in Romford, Essex.

Sue's sister Caron's boyfriend gave her the job after West Ham legend Tony Gale, 53, officially opened the new eatery three months ago.

Four years ago grandmother Sue was given a police caution for allegedly shoplifting £800 worth of stock in Tesco and M&S.
