A UK ticket-holder has scooped £170 million to become the country’s biggest ever winner in the EuroMillions jackpot.

The ticket-holder instantly became one of the 1,000 wealthiest persons in the country and eclipsed the previous largest winners Chris and Colin Weir who won £161 million back in 2011.

The winner's fortune is such that it means they are now richer than Tom Jones or Ed Sheeran, who are "only" worth around £160 million.

But will it change the winner's life and what could the person buy with their winnings?

Here, we take a look at some of the options:
