Bingo player wins lottery jackpot
An air hostess has scooped a £1m lottery jackpot just hours after winning £700 playing bingo.
Kelly Caldwell purchased 10 Euromillions lines rather than her usual five after feeling that her luck was in following her bingo success.
The 29-year-old claimed the huge prize after winning the Millionaire Raffle, an offshoot of the main Euromillions draw.
The mother-of-one plans to use the money to fly to Egypt for her 30th birthday celebrations, while she also intends to buy a house with partner Jason Massey, although neither of them intend to quit their jobs.
“I’m ecstatic. It’s surreal but it’s starting to sink in now,” she said.
“Things like this don’t happen to ordinary working-class people like me.
“I just want to spend some money to make it feel real.”
