We've all day dreamed about winning big on the lottery but for one couple from Barnsley that dream has become a reality.

  • The moment Terry found out the news


Terry and his partner Kay Yoxall have already squeezed in two holidays since the win just over one month ago, and now plan to travel the world when Covid restrictions allow.

Terry, who used to be a defender for Sheffield united and then became a ground worker says it's been a "massive shock" and that they are looking forward to being mortgage free.
