'She'd have never been able to do that in LA':

She's the daughter of late music legend Elvis Presley, and has led a life of wealth and privilege.

But Lisa Marie Presley has been hiding a secret former job... selling fish and chips from a mobile van in East Sussex.

Since the 44-year-old singer moved into a £9million home in the village of Rotherfield back in 2010, it's fair to say she has fully immersed herself into local life.


And she was so keen to learn about the British way of life that she swapped Hollywood for haddock and spent a day serving up fish and chips to locals.

Kim Scales, owner of Mr Chippy and landlady of village pub The King's Arms, told MailOnline: 'It was when she first moved to the village about two years ago. She is really interested in who people are and wanted to know all about our lives and how we live.

'We own the pub and a mobile fish and chip van, but she said she'd never heard of anything like it, and said she wanted to work on it.

She got on there with her son, but we were all laughing because not one of the locals realised who it was. She served one local double fishcake and chips and he didn't have a clue that she was Elvis Presley's daughter.'

Lisa Marie is said to be a huge fan of traditional English food, and loves nothing more than fish and chips and a pint of Guinness in The King's Arms.

Mrs Scales added: 'She loves fish and chips and drinks and eats in the pub all the time. She's partial to a pint of Guinness, too!

'It was nice for her to have that normal experience. She'd have never been able to do that in LA. She doesn't come down here all glammed up, she's just herself and always mingles with the locals in the pub.'

Asked if she would employ Lisa Marie, Mrs Scales joked to MailOnline: 'No way! She got the fish all upside down and was totally cack-handed.'

Despite her glamorous upbringings, the singer is said to enjoy an evening down at the pub, enjoying the culinary delights of its restaurant and locally-sourced organic pork.

Lisa Marie has made no secret of her love for the UK since moving to East Sussex two years ago.
In a recent interview, she admitted she much prefers the way of life in Britain to living among 'self-absorbed' Californians.

She said on BBC Radio 2: 'I lived in the same neighbourhood for 17 years and I didn't even know a neighbour.

'When I moved here I was getting notes and flowers. That's what I love about it. It's simple, it's not flash, it was a quality of life I needed.'

Lisa Marie - who lives with her husband Michael Lockwood and three of her four children - added in another interview: 'We have found the quality of life so much more enriching and fulfilling.

'The civility, the culture, the people and its beauty have reawakened me and have smoothed out some of my bleak and jagged views about people and life.

'I can honestly say I am the only person who came to England for the weather. I love the cold and the rain.'
