The UK’s biggest EuroMillions winners took home £195m in July, making them richer than award-winning singer Adele, whose fortune is estimated at £150m.

The pair said their win had given them “time to dream”.

“I didn’t want to wake Jess, so I lay there for what seemed like an eternity. I spent some time looking for real estate with no budget cap, which was a novelty!” he added.
