Who won the Euromillions jackpot, what were the results and what could you buy?


Someone in the UK has woken up today suddenly richer than Ed Sheeran after scooping the £170 million EuroMillions jackpot to become the country’s biggest ever winner.
The player matched all five main numbers – 07, 10, 15, 44, 49 – and the two lucky stars – 03, 12 – in Tuesday’s draw following the longest-ever series of rollovers.
All we know at this stage is that the person with the winning ticket bought it in the UK.
The last big winner in the UK was in June when someone won £123 million but decided to stay anonymous.
