The winning ticket for the huge prize pot was drawn on July 10 draw and is worth £57,975,367.70 for matching all five main numbers – 3, 8, 26, 33, 45 – and Lucky Star numbers 7 and 10.

Camelot, the operator of the National Lottery put an urgent call out for ticket holders across the UK to check their lotto slips as the winning ticket had gone unclaimed for over a week.

The prize will be paid out at the ticket validation appointment before the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news, and there will be no information on where the ticket was purchased unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said: "Wow, what an amazing win for one lucky UK ticket-holder.

"This win ranks at number fourteen in the list of the biggest ever National Lottery winners and we look forward to helping them begin to enjoy their win."

He continued: “By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for Good Causes. On average, around £30 million is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to preserving the nation’s heritage.”

According to the Sunday Times Rich List 2018, the EuroMillions winner is richer than World Cup-winning French midfielder, Paul Pogba, who is worth an estimated £25 million, and Belgium's Kevin De Bruyne, worth £16 million, put together.

Previously, a plasterer who scooped £1m on the National Lottery spoke out to thank the customer who let him queue jump to buy the winning ticket.

Lucky Arron Walshaw, 32, from Ossett, West Yorks., was stood behind another customer with just two minutes to spare before the lotto closed last week.

But the kindly shopper allowed him to go in front which gave him just enough time to purchase the winning ticket on July 11.

Arron and his fiance Ceri Hall, 23, are now looking forward to buying their own home for them and their three kids.
