Couple win £ 1million lotto prize on Easter Sunday

A couple got a great surprise on Easter Sunday in the form of a £ 1million Lotto win.

Stephen Webster, 44, and his partner Arran Taylor, 40, were preparing an Easter egg hunt for their two children when he found out he was a National Lottery millionaire.

Mr Webster, of Somerset, matched five main numbers and the bonus ball from the lotto draw on Easter Saturday.

“Arran and I were having an Easter egg hunt for the downstairs kids while they waited in the guest room so we could hide all the eggs,” Mr. Webster said.

“Arran was really doing all the work while I was checking my emails, that’s when I noticed one from the National Lottery with news of my ticket.

“I didn’t really think about it when I saw the email, so when I logged into my national lottery account and actually registered the amount, I had to sit down.

“I called Arran and she checked it several times too.

“After that we were both in such a state of excitement that we forgot about the Easter egg hunt and the fact that the kids were still upstairs.

“We quickly finished hiding the rest of the eggs and quickly called them.

“Once all the eggs were found and the kids were concerned about the chocolate, we sat down for a cup of tea and checked again, just to make sure it was real.

“We finally confirmed the win with Camelot later today, but it’s just starting to sink.”

“We want to take the kids to Disneyland.

“When we told them about the win, that was the first thing they asked,” he said.

“They don’t really understand what’s going on but are really excited to meet Mickey Mouse.”

Ms. Taylor added, “Our son wants an Xbox and our daughter recently turned 10, so shopping is high on his list.

“We are planning to take a little road trip and spend a day with the girls. “
