A pensioner who believes her husband threw away her winning ticket has become the latest Briton to stake a claim to the UK's biggest ever lottery prize.
As Camelot confirmed that it had received more than 1,000 lost ticket claims relating to the £113 million EuroMillions jackpot, the unnamed woman was reported to have a written record of her "win".
She told the Coventry Telegraph that although she had noted down her winning numbers after buying a EuroMillions ticket, her husband had binned it by the time she realised her good fortune.
Aged in her 70s and living in Coventry, the woman told the newspaper: "I play the lottery, the EuroMillions and the Thunderball - but my husband takes the ticket off me and I don't see it again.
"That's why I always write my numbers down."
Camelot has not yet revealed which part of the UK the winning ticket was bought in, but has confirmed that no one has come forward with the winning ticket.
Confirming that no valid claim had yet been received, a Camelot spokeswoman said: "We have had over 1,000 lost ticket claims through the post relating to the £113 million EuroMillions jackpot prize from the draw on Friday October 8th."
The claims, coming from around the country, are understood to include some from people who have admitted they do not even know whether the ticket they mislaid matched the winning numbers.
