Celebrity Gogglebox star gets job as takeaway delivery driver after being 'cut off' by his parents
ZOE Ball's son Woody Cook is now a delivery driver after being "cut off" financially by his famous mum and dad.
The Celebrity Gogglebox star has been forced to work odd jobs to raise cash despite Zoe, 51, and his dad Norman Cook's astonishing wealth.
The university student, 21, revealed he bought an electric moped as a means to get around, posing with his new set of wheels and a helmet.
He wrote on Instagram: "Careful ordering deliveries in Brighton.
"I'm an electric menace. Who let me on two wheels?"
Woody revealed in October that parents Zoe and Norman – aka Fatboy Slim – have refused to let him live off their success.
Despite the former couple being worth a combined £35million, Woody insisted he was so poor he couldn't afford to buy bread.

The rising star said: "My parents make it clear that I was born into a privilege they have had to work their ass off to get.
"My parents have cut me off completely. They are like, 'Do you want to be a trust fund child or do you want to work?' I want to work, so I am now self-sufficient.
"The other day I couldn't afford bread but I'm working through it."
Woody appeared in the second series of TV game show The Circle in 2019 where he reached the final after becoming a hit with viewers, and he has since appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox with Zoe.
