The partner of Euromillions winner; Nicky Ottaway revealed experiencing a 'Pretty Woman' moment when she went shopping for an expensive handbag yesterday

"I just asked the sales guy how much it was and he said £1100 but had already turned his back and was walking away from us, so we thought fine! We won't buy it then!" she told journalists at a press conference this morning.

She said she hopes the sales person is regretting the comment now.

Julia Roberts played a character in the film Pretty Woman who was given the cold shoulder by shop assistants whilst trying to buy designer clothes.

Surrey Euromillions winner nets £107.9m

Camelot will today reveal the identity of a lucky car mechanic who scooped a staggering £107.9 million on the Euromillions.

The mystery man, who is also a racing driver, will discuss his plans for the future when he speaks at an event later.

The claimant, from Coulsdon, in Surrey, had the only ticket to hit the jackpot from Friday's draw, making him the National Lottery's fourth biggest winner.

The sum could help the winner buy their own Greek island such as Omfori, being advertised for just over £41 million, and a Lamborghini Veneno, one of the world's most expensive cars at a cost of £2.4 million, and still have plenty left to spend.

Double lottery winner says: "It's not that special"

Watch George Traykov answer questions from journalists who appear much more excited about his win than he does.

A man who won the lottery twice has appeared distinctly underwhelmed by his success. At a press conference, George Traykov, who's from Ilford, said he was not "that bothered" by winning £160,000 on the Euromillions, on top of a previous £1 million win.

Mr Traykov, who never picks his own numbers and always plays the lucky dip, was so laid back about his second big money win that he didn't even claim it until two months after the prize draw in November.

Mr Traykov, who's originally from Bulgaria, bought his winning ticket at a Tesco store in Barking and could maybe one day make it a hat-trick of wins as he said he planned to carry on playing.
