A ticket-holder has come forward to claim a £32.5 million Lotto jackpot which was won in the UK on Saturday, Camelot said.

One winner scooped Saturday's jackpot of £32,534,188 million, the National Lottery operator confirmed. 

The claim, which needs to be validated, could see the unknown ticket-holder receive the money as soon as Monday.

"This ticket-holder is the third biggest Lotto winner, with the biggest ever winners only having been made last month."

The ticket-holder is the 85th Lotto millionaire made in the game's record breaking run since October.

"It is fantastic this winner has come forward to claim their prize. The champagne is chilled and we have plenty to go round all of the new winners joining the National Lottery millionaires club."
