The couple are looking to relocate

The UK’s biggest ever lottery winners have revealed themselves and what they intend to use their £184m winnings for.

Joe and Jess Thwaite, 40-year-olds from Gloucester, have won the biggest ever prize from the Euromillions. The couple shares two primary school-age kids, and Joe has two children from a previous marriage who are currently attending university.

Jess’s late father played the National Lottery all his life and naturally “dreamed of winning.” After he passed seven years ago, Joe took up the mantle and began entering himself. It certainly paid off.

The winning numbers were 3, 25, 27, 28 and 29 – plus the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9.

Joe found out about the monumental win through the Lottery app and decided not to wake Jess as she had 20 minutes left before her alarm. He told Dermot O’Leary that he immediately began looking on Rightmove as the couple had been looking to relocate “for quite a while.”

Joe removed the pricing filters and told Jess, “I’ve got a secret to tell you” when she woke up.

“Don’t be stupid, don’t be silly,” she replied.
