A MARRIED couple have won Britain’s biggest ever EuroMillions lottery jackpot of £184 million with a Lucky Dip.

Joe and Jess Thwaite, from Gloucester, scooped the jaw-dropping £184,262,899 with a Lucky Dip ticket on the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday May 10.

Joe, 49, a communications sales engineer, and Jess, 44, who runs a hairdressing salon with her sister, have been married for 11 years and have two primary-school age children.

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.”

Mr Thwaite said “he didn’t know what to do” when he saw how much they had won.

“I couldn’t go back to sleep, I didn’t want to wake Jess up so I just laid there for what seemed like forever,” he added.

The record was previously held by an anonymous ticket-holder who banked £170 million in October 2019.

The new Lottery record-breakers mark the second EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this year.

A stonking £109 million jackpot from the draw on February 4 was claimed a few days later.
