The winner of the biggest Euromillions jackpot won on Friday, 10th August 2012 will be going public later on this morning to collect their cheque for a massive £148,656,000. Even though this was the biggest ever Euromillions jackpot in Euros, due to the current exchange rate it equates to the second biggest UK jackpot, after the famous win in July 2011 by Chris and Colin Weir. The winners, a couple from Haverhill in Suffolk, are due to pick up their winnings at a hotel in Hatfield Heath, near Bishop Stortford at approximately 11.30am today.
The winning couple of that £148 million Euromillions prize has been revealed! Adrian, 41 and Gillian, 40 Bayford of Haverhill, Suffolk must be delighted to receive their winnings, after what must have been a whirlwind of a weekend for them. The formal handing over of the giant cheque, complete with champagne and paparazzi will take place shortly. The couple have two children and run a second hand record store, called the Suffolk Music Centre Shop with Adrian's friend, Richard Hudspith, 39. The family live in a modest detatched house in Haverhill.
The lucky couple will not be alone in learning how to come to terms with the fact they are now richer than Andy Murray, Robert Pattinson, Lewis Hamilton and Adele combined. Euromillions organisers have a team of “Wealth Advisors” dedicated to helping lottery winners come to terms with their wins, who often work with jackpot winners for several years after their wins. They will advise on financial and legal matters, and also would have discussed the players’ decision to go public after their win.
Good job too, as Adrian and Gillian have now become the 516th richest couple in Britain, and sit above Sir Tom Jones, who languishes below them with £140 million. Here at Euromillions.com, we wish them the very best of luck, and look forward to seeing how they spend their money.
