Self-employed joiner Ryan Hoyle, 38, from near Rochdale, checked his emails at 6am on Saturday 18th April to find that he had won the jackpot, a whopping £58,366,487 making him 20th place on the lottery millionaires rich list.
Ryan said he could not believe his eyes when he checked his email. He normally takes his 11 year old daughter to Spain every year but said this will have to wait for now. Perhaps, he said, he would take her further afield to see water parks in Florida and maybe Disneyland too.
His Mum works at a local schools and suffers with a sore hip so he said she will be retiring straight away, as will his father who is a factory worker. His brother, who is recovering from a brain hemorrhage, will also be able to give up work Ryan said.
