Scotland’s Largs Colin and Chris Weir won a staggering £ 161m in 2011, while last year the British winner set a record of £ 170m.

The Lucky Panther was the biggest winner in the country, matching all five major numbers 07, 10, 15, 44 and 49 and two Lucky Stars 03 and 12.

If one ticket holder claims tonight’s bounty, they will be wealthier than the diva Adele and Goth couples Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. Both are worth £ 150m.

They will be slightly less in the bank than Ed Sheeran, who is worth about £ 160m.

The Shape of You singer spends cash on Grade II farms in Suffolk. The farmhouse now has a large outdoor kitchen, orangery, spiral wine cellar, recording studio and even a pub.

A Camelot official who runs the National Lottery and EuroMillions said:

“There are no other lottery games in Europe-and almost on earth-you can’t get a check of it in your hands, and the UK has more than a fair share of huge winners over the years. I am. “

To win the full amount, the player must match all five main numbers and two lucky stars.

Megawinners include Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk who brought home more than £ 148 million in 2012.

Last year was a particularly big year for Brit ticket owners.

In July, £ 123m was billed at one time, but Camelot does not reveal whether it is an individual winner or syndicate.

In the same year, Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland won the £ 114.9m EuroMillions jackpot.

Ade Goodchild won £ 71m in March, and another anonymous ticket holder earned £ 35.2m a month earlier in April.

Neil Trotter from Coulsdon, South London, earned £ 107.9m in March 2014.

And Dave and Angela Dose of Wisbeck, Cambridgeshire charged £ 101m in October 2011.

However, some of the people who claimed to win the big lottery have been struggling since then.

Last year, Mr. and Mrs. Weir were granted a quick divorce after 38 years of marriage.
