Historic Euromillions Winners Come Forward

The wait for the identity of the record-breaking Euromillions winner is finally over. The lucky British couple have gone public on their big win and share some of the details of their big win along with their future plans for the money.

Although strictly not the biggest Pound win on the Euromillions lottery (that honour belongs to Colin & Chris Weir from Scotland) Friday night’s jackpot was still the biggest ever Euro amount won on Euromillions. We are certain that the winning couple, who took home nearly £149 million, are not too concerned with the exact currency conversion. In Pounds or Euros it is still an unbelievably large sum of money.

Meet The Winners

Meet the lucky Euromillions winners, husband and wife Adrian and Gillian Bayford.

Don’t they look absolutely thrilled? We are sure that the expressions on their faces are not doing the emotions they must be feeling any justice.

At the press conference announcing their incredible win they had the following words to say about matching all 7 numbers:

"It was a nice feeling!"

Adrian co-owns a music shop while Gillian is a children's ward healthcare assistant at a hospital in Cambridge. Both are in their early forties and thus have many, many years ahead of them to enjoy the prodigious fruit of their amazing win.

Finding Out You Are A Winner

The Bayfords surprise winning revelation was a real family affair. Adrian went to his room on Friday night to check the winning Euromillions numbers on his mobile phone. He says:

“I just couldn't believe what I was seeing!”

Adrian was so excited that his screams woke the whole house. His wife, Gillian, was initially angry with him for having woken the children but her pleas for him to keep his voice down were soon replaced with her own high volume whoops of joy.

The couple quickly phoned up relatives to inform them of their overnight success on Euromillions:

"Everyone was very surprised to hear from us so late at night and thought we were joking at first. It took us a while to make them believe us!”

The lucky couple, who have been happily married for eight years, have now instantly found themselves at number 516 on Britain's Rich List. Talk about social climbers?

The Bayfords kiss their old life goodbye...

What Do You Do With All That Money?

The Bayfords were so excited at discovering they had matched all 7 numbers on Euromillions that they couldn’t sleep. Instead they spent the whole night surfing the internet planning how they would spend their massive cash fortune.

They have not made any definite decisions yet but these are their basic items on their shopping list:

•    A dream home
•    An Audi Q7 for Gillian
•    A trip through the Canadian Rockies by train
•    A trip Disney World
•    Supporting Children's charities

We are certain that Adrian and Gillian have a mind full of ideas on how to make use of their new found wealth. We wish them the best of luck with their future plans!

This is sick again England won the jackpot may be a scam because it is still someone in England to win the game is properly manipulated. I give you such a question that the next time that England will win the Euromillions at 195 million €? It is a scam to me, I think they make billions on it and can win only Englishman. To have such an agreement from the French lottery take money from all over the world therefore robs money from around the world and win be brought to England ...

Hi Vladimir. There has been many winners throughout the years, many from other countries as well. It is also important to remember that the UK is the country with the highest amount of ticket sales.

big wins, always UK, ok there has been winners from other countries as well. but think about spain, there is money crisis, there you can officially play the euromillions lottery, I'm sure many people are playing but I never hear that someon won from there. or france this is an incorrect world so I can imagine this is manipulated I just wanna be sure if I pay for something, I can get what I want, I can hope. not just rob my money. never can be sure what's behind the scenes btw I wish for them happiness

Hi Ken. Publicity surrounding a win will all depend on your personal choices regarding remaining anonymous.
