QPR defender Paul Konchesky has opened up a pie and mash shop in Brentwood, Essex.
The 34-year-old describes his love for pie and mash: "There was this pie-and-mash shop next to our school in Dagenham. Every Tuesday we'd all have mash and liquor for a pound in a takeaway cup.
"Every Friday it'd be proper pie, mash and liquor, with jellied eels. And a cream soda. Without fail.
"I used to be a right dumpling with a big fat face. I was quite tubby when I had my first fitness test at Charlton.
"I was in the first team at 16 with John Robinson and that, getting crates of beer on to the team bus. And on the way home we'd stop for fish and chips."
