The reluctant millionaire bought a ticket in Tower Hamlets, and was one of 10 lucky players from the EuroMillions Mega Friday draw on 28 November, 2014. They were guaranteed a £1m prize plus the trip of a life time to Australia, Peru or Brazil.

But no one came forward with a winning ticket before Wednesday's deadline. It means the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

We tried very hard to find the ticket-holder and it’s a real shame that they have missed out.

The winning code on the ticket was TFB893929.
