Camelot said there would be no information given out on the ticket-holder, including if it is an individual or syndicate or where the ticket was bought, unless the winner decides to go public.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at the National Lottery, said: "It's been an amazing year for Lotto players with numerous giant jackpots won.

"We look forward to helping this ticket-holder settle into their new millionaire lifestyle.

"I'll ensure we have a glass of ice cold champagne ready to toast their life-changing win."

Winning Lotto ticket-holders this year have banked £21 million in June, £19.1 million in March, £16.9 million in September, £14.4 million in August and £12.7 million in July.
