"By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise, on average, around £30M every week for projects across the UK, including funding everything from local community projects to supporting the nation’s athletes.”

Friday's EuroMillions jackpot will be £14million.

Steve and Lenka Thomson, who won big last month, said they'll use the riches to move out of their 'shoebox three-terraced house' so their three children can each have a room of their own while also vowing to 'do a lot of good' with the eye-watering sum they've described as 'too much for us'.

Builder Steve was back painting a ceiling hours after finding out about the life-changing win and has pledged to complete the work he's started over fears of letting customers down in the run-up to Christmas.

The modest couple, from from Selsey, West Sussex, met while working at a local leisure complex.

"I knew it was a really big win but didn’t know what to do.  I went out to my van, walked back in, thought about knocking on a neighbour’s door, went back to the van – I think I was on the verge of having a heart attack," father-of-three Steve said.
