Cigarettes or scratchcard? Transgender taxi driver scoops £4m lottery win

A transgender taxi driver is planning her dream wedding after scooping £4m on a scratchcard.

Melissa Ede, 57, became a millionaire days after her partner asked her to marry her with a Christmas proposal.

Miss Ede says she has ditched their modest plans for a small register office event for a full-on spectacular.

"It'll be a fantastic wedding," she said.

"It's not going to be the normal wedding.

"At the end of the day, Melissa Ede does everything differently so my wedding will be done differently."

She said it had made Christmas special for the first time in her life.
