Gareth and his wife Catherine joked they were the most “boring multimillionaires” when they won £40.6million the EuroMillions in 2012.
She said she wanted a new carpet for the six-bedroom home he had just built and have her hair done twice a year.
But he eventually splashed out on a huge hospitality box at Old Trafford and another at Wembley.
They also bought a holiday villa in Tenerife. She gave up her job and he wound down his building company.
While it seemed to be going well for the pair, they ended up splitting up and Gareth started dating a woman named Donna Desporte, who he seduced by telling her to “Google him” in a bar in Tenerife.
They had a nine-month fling – which ended with him ignoring and avoiding her, according to Donna.
The National Lottery raises money to go to many ‘good causes’ and have helped give out numerous grants to those that need it most.
On their website they state: “We retain around just 1% of revenue in profit, while around 95% of total revenue goes back to winners and society. More so, we run one of the most cost-efficient major lotteries in Europe, with around 4% of total revenue spent on operating costs.
“To date, National Lottery players have helped to raise over £43 billion for Good Causes, with more than 635,000 individual awards made across the UK – the equivalent of more than 225 lottery grants in every UK postcode district.”
Thankfully, experts have crunched the numbers to reveal the odds of bagging a win – and the answer might surprise you.
According to Oddschecker, the best scratchcard to snap up is £500 Loaded with odds of just 1 in 3.15.
For just a fiver you could be in the running for £500.
In second place, with the same odds, is Full of £500s which also has a top prize of £500.
Cashword Multiplier follows close behind, which sees punters scratch off letters to reveal symbols to create full words.
The draw takes place at 8.00pm every Monday and Thursday.
The results will follow on our blog shortly after.
Best of luck to all playing tonight!
The Set For Life draw runs on Mondays and Thursdays and one lucky Brit could win £10,000 every month for the next 30 years.
Players have to pick five numbers from 1-47 plus one Life Ball number from 1-10 or go with a Lucky Dip to get a randomly generated number.
You can buy Set For Life tickets online every day from 6am until 11pm. But remember, to play on a draw day, you’ll need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.
The winning numbers go out at 8pm and can be found on the National Lottery website or their YouTube channel.
Your chances to win may be remote but if you do you could win big.
Here are some of the record prizes one by UK winners in the past:
Any cash that isn’t claimed after a total of 180 days from a game played in the UK goes to National Lottery projects across the country.
Folks in Ireland have just half that time to claim too, with only 90 days before the prize money is off the table.
Once the claim period is over, the ticket officially expires and the owner of the lottery ticket will no longer be able to claim any of their winnings.
But after that time has expired, any unclaimed prizes, plus any interest they might have accumulated in that time, are allocated to the National Lottery’s Good Causes fund instead.
This will usually then go on to help fund things like sport programmes or local community buildings or other projects.
A £115million jackpot is probably enough to not just change your life, but the lives of everyone you’ve ever cared about too.
Which is probably why Frances and Patrick Connolly decided to give over half of their winnings to 175 people.
“We won £114,969,775.70 and we have given away more than half,” Frances said last year.
“That’s £60million-worth of love. And the thing that makes me even happier is that every single person we gave money to has passed some of it on to other people. I can’t think of a day since winning the Lottery that I haven’t smiled.”

Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.
By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.
After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.
“Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.
“For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.
“There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”
