Someone in the UK has woken up today suddenly richer than Ed Sheeran after scooping the £170 million EuroMillions jackpot to become the country’s biggest ever winner.

The player matched all five main numbers – 07, 10, 15, 44, 49 – and the two lucky stars – 03, 12 – in Tuesday’s draw following the longest-ever series of rollovers.

All we know at this stage is that the person with the winning ticket bought it in the UK.

The last big winner in the UK was in June when someone won £123 million but decided to stay anonymous.

A UK ticket-holder scooped £170 million to become the country’s biggest ever winner in the EuroMillions jackpot.

Whoever has won it this time around will be thinking about the new life they’re going to lead and exactly what they are going to do with their money.
