One lucky grandmother from Wedmore in Somerset has scooped a life-changing £443,377 lottery jackpot prize.

Mary Ellis, 67, was overwhelmed when she realised that all her six numbers matched the ones on the National Lottery draw.

The retired grandmother said a store assistant in the local shop had to calm her down whilst they checked her numbers.

Mary says she has played the same numbers which are a combination of special dates, twice a week since Lotto started just over twenty years ago.

She also said it would be great to finally own her own home. Credit: Effective Communication

As well as treating my family, the first thing on my shopping list is a new car, followed by a new house – after renting for years, it would be great to finally own my own home.

It won’t be far away from the current house though because some of my children and grandchildren are nearby and I would like to stay close.
