I scooped £105million lotto jackpot – but now I wish I never won and had normal life | The Sun

A MAN who scooped a £105million lotto jackpot wishes he had never won – and wants a normal life again.

Builder Steve Thomson landed the massive EuroMillions prize back in 2019.

"Steve misses the job and all that comes with it, like the great lads he worked with and the brilliant banter they had together on site."

He also gave £50,000 to the school two of his sons attended, £50,000 to a medical centre and £100,000 to his beloved cricket club.

Steve and wife Lenka, 44, lived in a £150,000 three-bed terraced house with their three children when they won.
