An eye-watering £109.9 million EuroMillions jackpot has been claimed by a UK winner.

The ticket-holder was the sole winner from Friday night's draw, Camelot announced.

The winning main numbers on Friday were 03, 25, 38, 43, 49 – while the winning Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 07.

A single UK player matched all five Euromillions numbers as well as the two Lucky Star numbers to scoop the top prize.

This isn't the first time a UK winner has claimed the huge prize, although Friday's win will put them into the 10th place on the National Lottery's rich list.

Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news, Camelot said.

There will be no information on whether they are an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Camelot’s senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, Andy Carter, said: “We’re delighted this amazing prize has now been claimed. It’s an amazing EuroMillions jackpot win which has propelled the lucky winner into the list of the top 10 biggest National Lottery winners ever.
