Woman got so drunk she forgot that she bid £20,000 on house in auction and won

What is the most ludicrous think you have done after having a few drinks?

Well, this one woman's story is quite unbelievable and will be hard to beat. Luana Riberia from Wales got so drunk she forgot she had put in a £20,000 bid for a house – and ended up winning.

She took part in an auction for the home, which is on the outskirts of Leeds, while she was at work.

Earlier on in the day, she had been to view the house with a friend who wanted to buy it.

However, after quite a few drinks in a nightclub after she finished work, Luana put in a bid for it.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "I went to see a house with a friend as it was on auction, but my friend didn’t want it as it was in a rough area.

"I liked the property and thought it could be really lovely and a good investment.

"So, I went to the nightclub where I worked, stayed afterwards and got very drunk."

She continued: "I don't actually have any recollection of doing this, but apparently I got home the next morning, called the estate agent, put a bid in and got the house.

"I woke up hungover and my boyfriend at the time was very annoyed, and was giving me the silent treatment."

Her now ex-partner recalled how she got into the house at 8.30am and insisted on calling the estate agents where she then put the offer in on the house.

Luana then went into bed after the heavy night and was none the wiser.

It wasn't until she woke up that she realised the house was hers.

Luana recalled how that night 'one drink turned to two', which then turned into drinking games and the rest of the night was a bit of 'a blur'.

Surprisingly, this drunk story has a very good ending as Luana had the house for a year and then sold it for double the amount she paid for it.

The cash she made in the profit allowed her to move to Portugal, where she became an author and founded her own media company.
