A British lottery ticket holder has come forward to scoop the £115m jackpot in Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw.
Operator Camelot confirmed the person has claimed the prize – to get their new year off to an incredible start.
The player has just become the fourth biggest winner in UK history by winning the entire £114,969,775.70 jackpot, according to the National Lottery.
A further 10 players have also pocketed £1 million each in the New Year’s Day draw.
The winning main EuroMillions numbers were 01, 08, 11, 25, 28 and the winning EuroMillions Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 06.
The New Year’s Day win follows a series of high-profile lottery prizes in recent years.
In July 2011, Colin and Chris Weir became the biggest lottery winners in the UK – and across Europe – when they scooped more than £161 million.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148 million in August 2012, while the biggest prize awarded in the country in 2018 was £121 million, handed to an anonymous winner in April.
And last November, builder Andrew Clark, 51, from Boston, Lincolnshire, discovered he had won £76 million – six weeks after the draw.
He said he stockpiled tickets in his van, only checking them every three months.
