British jihadist Sally Jones is said to have attempted to enlist the help of a chef at Pizza Express to assassinate the Queen.

Jones, also known as the ‘White Widow‘, is believed to have groomed a chef named Adam for her plan to kill the Queen during the 70th anniversary VJ Day celebrations in August 2015.

The former punk rocker from Chatham, Kent, was killed by a US drone in June after travelling to Syria with her son JoJo to join Isis.

She apparently gave bomb-making kits to Adam, who posed as a 19-year-old woman called Izdihar to expose Jones.

He told The Sun: “She was desperate for me to carry out an attack on the VJ Day celebrations where the Queen would attend.

“She sent me bomb-making kits and told me she would put me in touch with jihadi sisters in Britain.

“But she also used a lot of ­emojis and smiles to put me at ease and come across nice while planning with me to kill.”

Jones reportedly told Adam to build a pressure cooker bomb that was the “same” as the one used in the Boston bombings in 2013, that resulted in the deaths of three people.

Adam added: “It was pretty scary at times. Once we realised what she was planning we handed all the material over to the authorities.”

Jones was killed close to the border between Syria and Iraq by a US Air Force strike in June, which also claimed the life of her 12-year-old son.
