Lottery Winner Has Already Told Her Ex He 'Won't See A Penny'

Lottery Winner Has Already Told Her Ex He 'Won't See A Penny'

The single mum-of-four who won £14.5 million on the Euromillions has already told her ex that he won't get a penny.

Beverley Doran, 37, apparently reached out to her former partner, Sean Priestley, to inform him of her win.

He wrote on Facebook: "My ex has won the lottery from last week, she's already assured me I will never see a penny so please don't ask me to have a word [to] see if I can borrow owt or invest in anything... it's nothing to do with me. I am, and probably always will be, skint."

She split up with Sean seven months ago and has managed to lose three stone since their split. Damn. It's very obvious who won their break up.

The mum-of-four was recently forced to give up her job as a receptionist after two of her children were diagnosed with autism in 2015. However, she's now cancelled her benefit payments of £320 per week which she has relied on for the past two years.

As well as telling her neighbours to help themselves to her sofa and washing machine as she will now be moving into a 'mansion'.

She said: "It's been a struggle financially - the benefit woman nearly dropped the phone when I told her I'd won the lottery.

"It's overwhelming to think that I won't have to struggle again. Before all my money went on the children and I went around in rags.

"I could now even buy a plane! I suffered with depression just worrying about what was going to happen to my children.

"I'm still waiting for someone to come and burst my bubble."

She discovered she had become a millionaire while lying in bed checking her phone on Saturday morning.

Bev treated herself to a luxury weekend in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, to celebrate the win.

Bev - whose treat usually involves dining at Morrisons Cafe - said: "I was still waking up when I logged into my account.

''I could see the jackpot amount but couldn't work out what I'd won. Then I slowly realised it was one UK winner and that that person was me.

"I babbled to my son and collapsed on the floor and started crying and shaking.

"I got charms for my children, for love and family and for my new wealth.

"One says 'sometimes you have to fall before you can fly'."

A fantastic story.
