Rollover creates second biggest pot

The second biggest jackpot in EuroMillions history will be up for grabs after nobody won Tuesday's draw.

If claimed by a single ticket-holder, a £126 million windfall could be landed on Friday.

Europe's biggest-ever jackpot winners were husband and wife Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, Ayrshire, who scooped £161 million in July.

A UK ticket-holder won the next biggest EuroMillions jackpot - £113 million in October last year - but decided to keep their identity secret.

A win on Friday would make a single ticket-holder wealthier than David Bowie, who has an estimated fortune of £100 million, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

A single winner would have a bigger personal fortune than former heavyweight boxing champion Lennox Lewis (£95 million) and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne (£95 million).

The winning numbers in today's EuroMillions draw were 35, 42, 47, 48 and 50.

The lucky stars were 8 and 9.
