Ade Goodchild is 15th biggest National Lottery winner

Ade Goodchild’s £71 million win makes him the 15th biggest National Lottery winner and follows a lucky streak on EuroMillions for UK players in recent months.

Patrick and Frances Connolly, from Moira, Co Down, scooped almost £115 million in the EuroMillions jackpot on New Year’s Day to become the UK’s fourth-biggest lottery winners.

They followed builder Andrew Clark, 51, from Boston, Lincolnshire, discovering in November he had won £76 million, six weeks after the draw.

In July 2011, Colin and Chris Weir, from Ayrshire, became the biggest lottery winners in the UK, and across Europe, when they scooped more than £161 million.

Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148 million in August 2012 while the biggest prize awarded in the country in 2018 was £121 million, handed to an anonymous winner in April.
