The builder who scooped the £105 million EuroMillions jackpot last month has remained true to his word and has gone back to work to finish the outstanding jobs he had left. Fair play. You wouldn't see me for dust if I won.

Steve Thomson from Selsey, West Sussex, won the whopper jackpot last month and vowed to complete the work he had on for existing clients.

The 42-year-old has been photographed out at work - lugging boxes and driving in his old work van, which he shares with friend and business partner Neil Peet - despite being worth millions.

A local resident praised Thomson, telling The Sun: "Steve's a mega jackpot winner but first and foremost a loyal builder.

"He could be sitting on a sun-kissed beach sipping champers but instead he's still at work like the rest of us."

Speaking in November, when he went public with his win, Steve said: "I would have got all my jobs done by Christmas if this hadn't happened!

"Once I am over the shock, I will need to keep doing something, I am not the type just to sit still. My business partner knows that if he needs a hand I'll be there."

However, Steve did add that he will likely stop working at some point and that he would like to move to a bigger house with his wife Lenka and three kids.


Describing the moment he realised he had won, he said: "I am not sure I even looked at the first two lines, the third one just jumped out and I could instantly tell they all matched.

"I started shaking a lot. I knew it was a really big win but didn't know what to do. I went out to my van, walked back in, thought about knocking on a neighbour's door, went back to the van - I think I was on the verge of having a heart attack."

Lenka said she's looking forward to going to visit her family in Slovakia, saying: "Not only can I treat my family and see them more often, but we can also look to have other holidays, perhaps somewhere hot with a beach."

Their three kids - aged between eight and 15 - have also got plans for the money, with their youngest son hoping to get a Tesla and their daughter eyeing up a pink iPhone.
