A lucky couple have been revealed as the winners of the largest ever lottery jackpot in the UK.
Joe and Jess Thwaite, from Gloucester, won a staggering £184,262,899 with a EuroMillions Lucky Dip ticket.
The win has now propelled Joe, 49, a communications sales engineer, and Jess, 44, who runs a hairdressing salon with her sister, to the top of the National Lottery’s rich list.
Only 14 players have ever won more than £100m and the previous record was an anonymous winner who took home £170 million in October 2019.
It’s more money than most of even dream of winning on the Lotto.
