A British ticket holder has won the EuroMillions jackpot of £121.3m.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery, said: "Wow – what a night for UK EuroMillions players.

"A single ticket-holder has banked the entire £121.3million jackpot and immediately becomes the third biggest winner this country has ever seen.

"Players are urged to check their tickets and, rest assured, we have plenty of champagne on ice ready to help The National Lottery’s newest multi-millionaire celebrate."

The winning main EuroMillions numbers are: 20, 23, 28, 30, 44

The winning EuroMillions Lucky Star numbers are: 03, 07

Colin and Chris Weir, husband and wife, from Largs in Ayrshire, are the biggest ever UK winners, scooping some £161m.

They said they were "tickled pink" after becoming Europe’s biggest lottery winners in July 2011.

What happens if you win the EuroMillions and National Lottery – and the one trick that helps keep it secret

Married for 30 years and with two children, the life-changing £161 million prize catapulted them into the Sunday Times Rich List above Beatle Ringo Starr and Sir Tom Jones.

Psychiatric nurse Mrs Weir, 55, and Mr Weir, 64, who worked as a TV cameraman and studio manager for 23 years, bought a mansion – which they later upgraded to a bigger one nearby – and a fleet of cars.

Children’s nurse Gillian, 40, and record seller Adrian, 41, from Haverhill, Suffolk, said they planned to fork out on luxury holidays and cars when they won in August 2012.

Adrian joked to his wife that he had not bought any tickets, before she told him to be quiet as she was trying to get their children to sleep as he celebrated the win.

The pair split 15 months after their win, although they remained on good terms. Adrian moved into a grade-II listed Georgian mansion with 90 acres of land – which came in handy when he staged the Cambridge Rock Festival in the grounds to save it from being cancelled.

And now there is an unknown person or family in third place.
