A British ticket-holder scooped more than £45million in the EuroMillions draw last night.
It is the latest big win for the UK, coming just two weeks after Mansfield couple Gareth and Catherine Bull picked up £40million.
No-one had last night come forward to claim the rollover jackpot, but the prize is seventh on the list of the largest jackpots ever to be won in the UK, totalling a life-changing £45,160,170.50p.

The winning numbers were 3, 15, 17, 28 and 33 and the Lucky Star numbers were 2 and 4.
A spokesman for lottery organisers Camelot said: ‘We look forward to paying out this lucky ticket-holder and of course have the champagne on ice.

‘These big draws help raise the £30million the National Lottery generates for good causes every week.’
If it is claimed by an individual, the £45million prize would make them as rich as actor Hugh Grant, according to The Sunday Times Rich List 2011.
But it still leaves them quite some way behind other big UK winners.
