A builder who said he felt he was “on the verge of having a heart attack” after winning a £105 million EuroMillions jackpot says he plans to keep working and laying the bricks.
The pair of British lucky winners of the jackpot have been named as 42-year-old builder Stevie Thomson and his wife Lenka, 41, from West Sussex England.
Mr Thomson said that when he clocked on that he had won that he felt he was “on the verge of having a heart attack”.
He said: “I started shaking a lot. I knew it was a really big win but didn’t know what to do. I think I was on the verge of having a heart attack.”
The dad of three said he would not be giving up his job as a builder immediately and added: “Once I am over the shock I will need to keep doing something, I am not the type just to sit still.
“My business partner knows that if he needs a hand, I’ll be there.”
The couple’s ticket won £105,100,701.90 on November 19, the 25th anniversary of the National Lottery’s first draw.
The prize was the sixth EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this year.
