The Doncaster North MP stunned diners when he dropped into a late night town centre takeaway and ordered pie, chips and peas as he mingled with drinkers and partygoers in Doncaster.
Ed, famously pictured having an awkward moment with a bacon sandwich, had no such qualms about joining the upper crust with a slab of pie, dropping into the Yorkshire Pie House on Silver Street where, according to the diner's Facebook page, he enjoyed a slap up feed.
The takeway posted: "Ed Milliband clearly has taste!
"If you didn't already know what he does on a Friday night, he rocks the pie house with his buddies. Apparently he's a chicken and ham kinda guy with chips and mushy peas. Strong work fella!"
The politician, who stepped down as Labour leader after losing to the Conservatives, is understood to have popped into the pie house last Friday night, where his visit was captured on CCTV.
