Who is Alfie Best’s mum Jane Best?
Alfie Best was born at a layby in Leicester in 1970 in his family’s mobile home.
His mother, Jane Best, was always confident in her son’s future success.
“When Alfie was a little boy, he came to me and said ‘that man got a cracking car over there,'” Jane said exclusively to The Sun. It’s a massive Rolls-Royce. “I told him, ‘You know what, save your money and one day you’ll have a Rolls-Royce.'”
Alfie took his mother’s advice and grew up to become a business magnate with a fortune of roughly £1.2 billion.
Who is Alfie Best’s dad?

What have Alfie Best’s parents said about him?
Alfie’s mum Jane told The Sun: “He’s always at work even if he’s on holiday. His brain don’t click off. That’s how my Alfie’s like.”
Jane pondered on his youth and said that growing up, Alfie wasn’t always easy to live with.
She said: “He was like having 20 children. He was a handful to look after.”
In a Sun exclusive Alfie’s dad claimed he always knew his son was special.
“Well, I had about four jobs to do, tarmacking. I couldn’t do them.
“Someone pulled in the layby and he went and gave us three loads of scrap. So that tied us over until the snow cleared.
“That’s why I always think of him as being a lucky baby.”
Jane told The Sun: “What mother and father wouldn’t be proud of a son like him?”
His dad said: “I’m really really proud that it’s my son who’s done it.”
