A claim has been made for a £24 million EuroMillions jackpot which was won by a UK ticket-holder on Friday, Camelot has said.

It has yet to be validated, could see the unknown ticket-holder receive the money as soon as Monday.

The winning numbers were 31, 49, 28, 20, 03 with Lucky Stars 05, 02.

The claim, which needs to be validated, could see the unknown ticket-holder receive the money as early as Monday.

It is not yet known whether the prize was won individually or as part of a syndicate, or where the ticket was purchased.

"After an unprecedented nine UK EuroMillions winners in 2015, it looks like the luck has rolled over into 2016", a National Lottery spokesman said.

This follows last month when Lotto created its biggest ever winners and the record-breaking number of Lotto millionaires made since October, a stunning 83. What a time to be a National Lottery player in the UK.

We are delighted the latest big EuroMillions winner has come forward to claim their prize and of course the Champagne is on ice ready to welcome them into the National Lottery millionaires' club.
