A car mechanic from South London has bagged a whopping £107.9 million Euromillions jackpot plans to buy a fleet of supercars with his new-found fortune.

41-year-old Neil Trotter learnt he was the single ticket-holder to scoop the massive jackpot on Friday evening at around 10.30pm.

"I took out my ticket to check the winning numbers and amazingly one by one they matched. I told Nicky, my partner, 'I've done it, I've won the lottery'. But she told me to shut up and to stop being an idiot.

"Apparently I turned white as a sheet and couldn't sit still, I kept walking round the house - I didn't know what to do with myself. I got her to check the numbers with me and she started screaming.

Potter says he plans to upgrade his oil-stained Ford Focus with some flashier cars, including a McLaren.

But first on the shopping list is a new house, with ample garage space.

Trotter is by no means the only Brit to win big in the lotttey. Indeed, the EuroMillions has been kind to punters on these shores, as the following list of the UK's biggest individual lottery winners shows.

Note: this list excludes syndicate winners and those who chose to remain anonymous

And so what if they are goths, they paid they stake money and took their chances like everyone else, whose to say it should only be won by suit wearing yuppies.

Good luck to you both, now my only advice to you would be tape up your letter box, because your now likely to receive all sorts of begging letters from charities and fraudsters who are after something for nothing.

Good for them.

Reading through some of the comments below I can't believe how bitter and nasty some people are JUST because its not them.

Here we have 2 young people with their whole lives ahead of them and it all just got a whole lot better. Like most I struggle to make a living, mortgage, credit cards, bills, 2 kids to bring up etc. If I won the lotto only to find cheap shot comments from jealous people on the internet i'd be quite upset.


For god sake people, i'm not religious but envy IS a sin.


Well done Cassey and Matthew. Enjoy your winnings and have a fantastic life.

Have a word with yourself, that comment was totally un-nessersary. 

Jakub Malawski (below)

Anyway, good luck to you both, ignore the plumbs that have nothing better to do..

Many of us struggle through life with ups and downs including me but I'm a great believer in fate and clearly this couples fate was to win this money. Like most of us, I hope you enjoy your one go at life and with interest alone at probably around £25,000 a day, that's not bad at all. As Delboy once said, "We've had worse days" Good luck and ENJOY !!

They looked miserable. If I'd just won £45 million I'd be smiling like a Cheshire Cat
