    Britain’s unluckiest woman

    BRITAIN’S unluckiest woman lost out on the £178mil Euromillions jackpot – because each of her numbers was just one digit away from the winning seven balls.

    Tayla Octave, 19, could not believe it when she checked her lucky dip row against February’s mega draw and saw she had been so close to scooping the top prize – which you only have a one in 139,838,160 chance of winning.

    Marketing apprentice Tayla’s row was 5, 13, 24, 45, 49, with Lucky Stars 6 and 11 and the winning numbers were 4, 12, 25, 46, 48, 7 and 12.

    She told The Sun: “I’m just gutted. It’s a long shot to win the lottery anyway but to be so close is heart-breaking.

    “At first I just saw I hadn’t won anything but then I went through and compared them side by side and that’s when I realised that every single number I had was just one away from the winning ones.”

    Unexpected fortunes

    An Australian man unknowingly won the lottery a month ago and has finally come forward to claim his £2.4million prize.

    The ticket holder collected his winnings on Thursday after striking lucky in the Set for Life jackpot that was drawn on October 9.

    He will now be paid £11,000 a month for the next 20 years.

    Because his entry was unregistered, Lotto officials weren’t able to find or contact the man about his winnings and had to wait until he came forward.

    The lucky winner said he had his entry ticket tucked inside his wallet the entire time.

    Rags to riches…to rags again

    John Roberts, from Edinburgh, won a massive £3.1million back in 1998.

    But just three years later the security guard was penniless after blowing his money on cars, houses and luxury holidays.

    One of his first big buys was a massive Tudor mansion in Blackpool, which he moved his wife, Linda, and five children into.

    The five-bedroom detached home was worth around £160,000 when he bought it – and was a far cry from their council flat in Pilton, Edinburgh.

    The seaside house was called Balmoral, after the couple’s favourite Scottish beauty spot.

    In 2001, John moved out of the home and moved in with his cousin. At that time, it was worth £250,000

    John is now rumoured to be living on handouts from friends and family after his marriage fell apart, and was said to be living in a caravan at one time.

    Mum scooped £300,000 on Lottery scratch card

    A mum realised she had won £300,000 on a National Lottery scratch card after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.

    Sandra Davine only discovered her huge winnings after a life-changing phone call to a lottery line operator in December last year.

    Sandra declared that she thought she had won £1,000 – enquiring as to how it could be claimed.

    But unbeknown to her, her day was about a get a lot better as the phone line operator confirmed that she had actually scooped a whopping £300,000.

    A stunned Sandra, of Renfrewshire, Scotland, can be heard saying: “You must be joking. There’s no way.”

      What's with number 27?

      National Lottery ball number 27 is the most likely to help punters win a jackpot, researchers say.

      It has made more appearances than any other in 3,071 draws in the past ten years.

      The number came up 399 times in the UK National Lottery, Thunderball, EuroMillions and Irish Lotto.

      That is 141 more times than number 57, the unluckiest number, which was drawn just 258 times.

      The second luckiest is 54, which appeared 387 times. It was followed by 29, 42, 52 and 58 in joint third on 381 times.

      The next luckiest was number 20 with 378. Then came 23, with 372.

      Family drama

      In 2016, the Davies family won £61million on the EuroMillions.

      Stephanie Davies, then 23, reluctantly bought a ticket after mum Sonia phoned from Florida and begged her to buy one.

      Sonia, who worked as an administration assistant, was in the US having vital keyhole surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from the parathyroid glands in her neck, and had a feeling she would go on a winning streak after the op was a success.

      But even this happy family couldn’t avoid controversy as it was reported father of the family Keith, of Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, would share his cash with his daughters with ex Mandy – but his wife’s son was allegedly snubbed.

      Keith’s partner Sonia’s estranged son Spencer Pugh claimed he would not see a penny of the £61million EuroMillions win.

        Rolling in it

        For many, winning the jackpot means mass celebrations and ultra-expensive cars – but not for Susan Hardman.

        When the mum-of-one’s numbers came up in January 2010 she worked as a hairdresser in Eardisley, Hereford, and was “struggling financially”.

        Instead of splashing out when the £1.2million win landed in her bank account, she traded in her scissors for overalls and became a pig farmer.

        Susan claimed to be happier than ever knee-deep in mud and said bringing a piglet into the world brought her “more satisfaction” than winning the lottery.

        'Money made my close relatives demanding and greedy'

        Euromillions mum Gillian Bayford is locked in a family feud over her share of a £148million jackpot.

        Gillian, 44, accused her dad Ian McCulloch, 72, of trying to seize control of the fortune she won with her ex Adrian Bayford, 46.

        The Dundee mum of two blasted Ian, mum Brenda and brother Colin, 42, saying: “It made them bitter and greedy.”

        And she told how she gave them a £20million slice of her fortune — only for them to come back for more.

        Gillian, who runs a property firm in Dundee, said: “It’s upsetting and it’s raw. The money was supposed to make everybody happy.

        “But it’s made my close relatives demanding and greedy.”

        'When you’re told you’re a millionaire, it feels limitless'

        Roger Griffiths and his wife Lara netted £1.8million on the National Lottery in 2005.

        He had worked as an IT manager and she as a performing arts teacher but both quit their jobs.

        The couple enjoyed the high life and went on a lavish spending spree splashing £800,000 on a barn conversion in Yorkshire, flash cars and five-star holidays in Dubai, New York and Monaco.

        Wannabe rock star Roger also spent £25,000 making a record with his old band from Lancaster University.

        The couple invested in property and a beauty salon but the housing crash saw the value of their portfolio plummet.

        By 2013 the money had gone and the couple had split up, each blaming each other for the reversal in their fortunes.

        Roger said: “When you’re told you’re a millionaire, it feels limitless. We had played the Lottery for years – when I found out I’d won, it was overwhelming.”

        Lara has revealed she has to sell her collection of designer handbags now to get by.
