Millionaire lottery winner, Gavin Davies, has today been jailed for 16 months after assaulting his 22-year-old girlfriend in one of his luxury cars.

The former professional cagefighter blamed the incident on the "strain" of becoming an overnight millionaire.

Today the judge at Swansea Crown Court described the incident as "a nasty and prolonged assault".

Davies, of Ammanford, near Swansea, has spent 86 days in custody since being charged. This will be included in his 16 month sentence.

Lottery millionaire faces jail

A lottery winner from Ammanford who beat up his girlfriend will be sentenced today.

Gavin Davies, 29, pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm, as well as a charge of common assault from December. The cage fighter beat his partner in a "prolonged" violent assault months after clinching a EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle win.

Davies toasted his good fortune with champagne at a luxury hotel after clinching £1 million in January. At the time he vowed to turn his back on cage fighting and transform his win into a much larger fortune.
