Who won the Euromillions jackpot?
At a press conference hosted by Dermott O’Leary at Ellenborough Park hotel in Cheltenham, the couple were revealed to be Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester.
The couple, who are parents of two primary school-age children, have been married for11 years.
Mr Thwaite is a communications sales engineer and his wife manages the business of a hairdressing salon she runs with her sister.
Mrs Thwaite said: “The win gives us time to dream which we haven’t had before. We’ve had one week to think about this and we now have time to share lots of experiences and go on adventures with our family and friends.”
This is the UK’s second EuroMillions jackpot win of this year with the first being drawn on February 4.
The winner claimed their £109 million prize a few days later but has chosen to remain anonymous.
The EuroMillions are drawn every Tuesday and Friday at 7.45 pm.
It is played in nine countries, including Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Ireland, Switzerland (Los and Romance) Portugal (Romande), and the United Kingdom.
