Who won the last EuroMillions?
Just one lucky ticket matched all the numbers to scoop the £114.9million New Year’s Day EuroMillions jackpot in 2019.
Frances and Patrick Connolly, from County Armagh in Northern Ireland, celebrated the (extremely) lucky dip win with a cup of tea, after first thinking it was a scam.
Their exact prize pot was £114,969,755.70 making the couple the fourth-largest lottery winners in the country.
The generous pair – a retired teacher and businessman – said one of the first things they did was sit down and write a list of 50 people they want to share the money with.
Aside from helping out friends and family Patrick plans to splash out and swap his current Laguna for an Alfa Romeo, and buy a house.
He also wants to retire from his work in manufacturing, shower his wife with gifts, buy a Jaguar and take a trip to the Maldives.
They have three grandchildren, two boys and a girl, a 30-year-old daughter and twins aged 24.
