After winning £1 million on the UK National Lottery, Martin Brandist and his wife Debbie are planning lots of sun, sea and great weather with a holiday home in Lanzarote in the Canaries.

UK National Lottery

The lucky couple from Nuneaton, Warwickshire matched five main numbers and the bonus ball in the UK National Lottery draw on September 18th.

Mr Brandist who has been playing the UK National Lottery game for 25 years found out the lucky dip ticket was a big winner at 6.30 am the morning after the draw.

Speaking to the press he said: "In a daze, I dashed into the bedroom to ask Debbie to scan the ticket on her phone and unbelievably it came up with the same message, congratulating us.

"At that point, I was just standing there in shock, my face went white and my mouth was wide open."

"I've played the National Lottery since it started 25 years ago, with the same numbers made up of special birthdays and house numbers, but I never dreamt this would happen to us."

"It will make such a difference to us and our families."

The couple are looking forward to living in Lanzarote full time in the future but their immediate plans are to clear their existing mortgage and buy treats for their three children aged 23, 19, and 14.

Mr Brandist added: "We can live our dream and go out there several times a year, perhaps even spend winters out there - and our relatives can use it too.

"Debbie has been learning the language for a while and one day we'd love to move to Lanzarote full time."
