A family from south Wales are celebrating becoming millionaires after they scooped a whopping £61.1 million in the EuroMillions JackPot.

The family syndicate are celebrating their £61,102,442.90 win in Friday's draw. They matched five main numbers and two lucky stars.

The identities of the winners will be revealed on Wednesday when they will announce how they are to spend their winnings.

The National Lottery has announced the family are from Monmouthshire.

What an amazing win for the UK - the fourth EuroMillions jackpot to be won here this year.

We're delighted the ticket-holder has come forward to claim their prize and their ranking of 10th place in the National Lottery rich list.

The winning numbers were 01, 21, 26, 40 and 50, while the lucky star numbers were 02 and 04.

As well as the jackpot prize, five players won a guaranteed £1 million and a luxury trip to Australia's Gold Coast in the UK Millionaire Maker, a National Lottery spokesperson said.

The latest win comes after an unnamed UK ticket-holder claimed £51.8 million on EuroMillions in April, which followed jackpots worth £24.7 million and £24.6 million won by UK ticket-holders in February. All three have remained anonymous.

The largest win in the UK was £161,653,000 scooped in the EuroMillions jackpot in July 2011 by Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, North Ayrshire.
