On Friday night the £113 million EuroMillions rollover Mega Jackpot was shared by two lucky ticket holders and the following morning the National Lottery website showed TWO UK EuroMillions jackpot winners but since then it has been announced that one EuroMillions winner is a mum-of-two from Cirencester but the second EuroMillions winner remains anonymous. There are rumours that the second winning ticket belongs to an ex-pat from Almeria in Spain.

Speculation regarding the identity of one of Friday night’s EuroMillions has been running rife in the small town of Mojacar in Spain, a community of approximately 10,000 residents, half of who are British ex-patriots. The owner of the lottery kiosk where one of the two winning EuroMillions tickets was bought reinforced suspicions that the lucky EuroMillions winner was British by saying “There are a lot of British living in the town and many buy their tickets here.

However, as rumours circle the small Spanish town where one of the lucky tickets was bought it has been confirmed that Justine Laycock, 40, from Cirencester in Gloucestershire is one of the two lucky EuroMillions ticket holders who bagged a cool £56.5 million during Friday night’s EuroMillions draw, becoming the biggest of all UK lottery winners. Mrs Laycock is an estate agent and mother-of-two who resides with her partner Nigel Page and her two children. Unsurprisingly, the record-breaking lottery winner has informed her boss that she won’t be working her notice period.

So even after the error on the National Lottery’s behalf, they could still have predicted correctly as it could still be two British ticket holders who scooped the £113 million jackpot on Friday.
