The winners of the £148.6m EuroMillions jackpot have been revealed as a music shop owner and a healthcare assistant from Haverhill in Suffolk.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford are rich beyond their dreams after becoming the UK's second biggest lottery winners when they won the jackpot in Friday's draw.
The couple, who have a daughter, six, and son, four, said they celebrated by going to Domino's Pizza for tea.
Adrian, 41, who co-owns a music shop in Haverhill, said they struggled to fully appreciate they had won the jackpot on Friday evening as their young son had just woken up and was crying and his wife, 40, was trying to settle him.
He said: "I had been watching the film The Bank Job on TV while Gillian was out with friends. When she got back we decided to turn over and catch up on the news.
"Scrolling along the bottom of the screen was the news that one person had won EuroMillions." Gillian told Adrian she had forgotten to buy a ticket and he joked he hadn't got one either, though he had bought five lines.
While Gillian settled the children he checked the numbers on his phone. "I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I rushed back and turned on the main light, at which point Gillian went ballistic. The kids were awake by now.
"I was trying to tell her that we had won the lottery and she was telling me to keep the noise down."
The couple rang family members immediately. "Everyone was very surprised to hear from us so late at night and thought we were joking at first," Gillian said.
They spent until the early morning searching the internet deciding how they wanted to spend their money.
Gillian who has worked night shifts in the children's ward at Addenbrooke's hospital in Cambridge for the past three years intends to give up work. On her shopping list is a new family home and an Audi Q7. Adrian, who intends to keep his music shop open, wants to visit the Canadian Rockies by train. While for the children, a trip to Disney World is on the wish list.
The couple revealed their plans at Down Hall County House hotel in Hertfordshire on Tuesday.
They said they wanted to share their good fortune with family and friends.
Gillian said: "Children's charities are close to our hearts so we will be exploring how we can use this money to help those charities."
It had been an "extremely tight" month financially for the couple before their win, the size of which was "slightly frightening but exciting", she said.
A hand-written sign in the window of Adrian's shop, the Suffolk Music Centre, said on Tuesday the shop was closed and would re-open tomorrow.
Theirs is the seventh EuroMillions ticket to have hit the jackpot in Britain this year.
Though the couple will be catapulted into Britain's Rich List, they're not quite up there with the world's top jetsetters. The amount, for example, would buy them about half of the world's most expensive super yacht, Eclipse, which is owned by Roman Abramovich, and said to be worth £340m.
They could splurge it on a three-floor penthouse trophy home at One Hyde Park, London, with one changing hands two years ago for £136.4m.
Or if football is their thing, they could buy Wayne Rooney, and still have change. Paris St Germain is reportedly preparing a £100m bid for the Manchester United and England striker.
Friday's winning number were 50, 21, 17, 48 and 11, and the Lucky Star numbers were 9 and 10.
The Bayfords' winning lottery sum is the second biggest in Britain, behind that of Colin and Christine Weir, from Largs in north Ayrshire, who won £161m in July last year. The Weirs, married for 30 years and with two children, entered the Sunday Times Rich List above musicians Ringo Starr and Sir Tom Jones. They have since reportedly bought a fleet of cars for friends, as well as a mansion.
David Dawes, 47, a shift supervisor for Premier Foods, and his wife, Angela, 43, a volunteer for the British Heart Foundation, won £101,203,600 in October. It was only the third time the couple, from Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, had played the lottery.
A third winner to top the £100m mark decided to remain anonymous. The ticket holder scooped £113,019,926 in October 2010.
A National Lottery spokesman said: "We've had seven jackpot winners from the UK this year, which is unprecedented. We have never seen anything like this.
"There's no rhyme or reason as to why we've been so lucky. It's a lottery at the end of the day."
