"Obviously it was the nerves but I think it was coupled with shocked disbelief, only two weeks earlier I had wound my husband up that we’d won £250,000 so to suddenly be calling The National Lottery to officially claim £1M was just crazy.

“It’s great to hear my call again, it takes me right back to the beginning of our amazing winning adventure."

Charlotte explained that while the couple still work, they have splashed the cash on a new house.

After looking at his winning numbers, back in December 2018, Andy rang Camelot and the conversation sparked disbelief across the nation.

The 51-year-old from Boston, Lincolnshire, told the phone operator: "Hello there mate, I think I've won a few quid so I phoned."

To which the lotto staff member laughed and replied: "Okay, so you've won £76million."

Andy casually batted off the news and simply said: "Yeah."

"You're the person with the ticket," responded the phone operator in disbelief at the builder's calm reaction.

The operator then says: "Wow, what an amount of money. The exact amount was £76,369,806.80."
