Britain's Youngest Lottery Winner Has Spent Entire £1.8 Million Fortune

Britain's youngest Lotto winner has spent the £1.8 million ($2.4m) fortune she won aged just 16 in 2003.

Callie Rogers, now 33, spent more than half a million on homes for herself and her family, while a further £550k was spent on clothes, travelling and tattoos.

She also loaned and gifted around £190k to friends and family, while £188k was gifted to former boyfriends, as reported by The Sun.

Ms Rogers was banned from driving this week after she and her boyfriend ran away from her 4x4 after veering off a country lane.

Mum-of-four Callie, from Cumbria, was banned from driving for 22 weeks after failing a drugs test when she crashed her car, with her boyfriend Jason Fearon, 31.

While being detained, police officers were forced to use PAVA on her - a substance similar to pepper spray.

The incident took place last December, when police spotted her car near her then-boyfriend's home in Crosby, Cumbria at around 1.20am.

Fearon was caught, before resisting arrest and eventually being cuffed.

Ms Fee said: "He's then been led to the police van in which he stated, 'I told her not to drive', referring to the female he'd been with."

Ms Rogers then tested positive for cocaine but refused to give a breathalyser test.

Ms Fee added: "She both said that she was, and that she wasn't the driver repeatedly to police officers. Throughout, her behaviour seemed to be up and down."

Mike Woolaghan, defending, said: "She's in receipt of benefits at the moment - she's in receipt of Universal Credit for herself and the children.

"She has to accept that this inevitable loss of her driving licence is going to have a detrimental impact on her.

"And that impact will be hard-felt for her in her particular circumstances because of the care responsibilities she has for her children as a lone parent.

"But particularly with one of those children having quite profound disabilities.

"She is going to have to try and manage her life for the period of that disqualification without the benefit of her vehicle and her driving licence."

Ms Rogers, who is now single, has also been put on tag for 11 weeks, with a nighttime curfew. She was ordered to pay £200 fine for resisting arrest as well as £100 compensation to the officer.

Callie won £1.87 million when she was just 16. At the time, she was earning £3.60 an hour as a shop assistant at the local Co-op in her home town of Workington, Cumbria.

Single mum Rogers told The Mirror that the cash has now all gone.

"I am the happiest I have ever been," she told the newspaper.

She said she felt she was too young to handle the pressures of winning so much money at such a young age.
