Terry Kennedy was at work when he realised he'd got lucky, and naturally, he couldn't believe what he was hearing.

He subsequently called up to check he wasn't hallucinating and colleagues watched on as he waited with bated breath for confirmation that his life had been changed forever.

After checking to see he was sat down, the operator shared the incredible news that he had indeed won a million quid, prompting the lads in the room to break into rapturous celebration as Terry held his face in his hands.

If you reckon you recognise Terry, it may well be because he used to be a professional footballer.

The Yorkshireman made his debut for Sheffield United back in 2011, but his career never took off due to a recurring injury.

So it looks like his fortunes have now been flipped on their head.

Last November, a woman who thought she'd won £1,000 ($1,300) on a scratchcard was given the biggest and best shock of her life when she found out she'd actually won £300,000 (£410,000).

Sandra Devine, from Johnstone, Renfrewshire, Scotland, was planning to celebrate her husband Martin's birthday at an Italian restaurant, but it was fully booked.

Instead, they decided to nip to the shop for a few beers and a couple of scratchies.

Any disappointment about the lack of tiramisu in their lives quickly vanished though when they realised they'd won £1,000 - or so they thought.

The 37-year-old told LADbible: "I was over the moon because I thought I'd won £100 and my husband looked at it and said, 'I think it's £1,000,' but I kept saying 'There's no way it's £1,000'.

"He went up to the Post Office to check but they said to phone the number on the back in case it is £1,000, as they can't pay that out."

But Sandra and Martin were wrong to think they'd won a grand.

The mum-of-three recalled: "When the lady from Camelot [the lottery operator] said, 'Are you sitting down? You've won the jackpot of £300,000,' I just couldn't believe it.

"I couldn't speak while my husband and youngest son were jumping around the living room.

"None of us noticed the two squares we missed until we were told we won the jackpot, and the lady said, 'Can you see you've won it?' and when we looked we noticed we missed a few Cs."
