Bride-to-be Jackie scoops £1m on scratchcard

Wolverhampton | News | Published:

A bride-to-be from Wolverhampton today told how she went weak at the knees when she realised she'd scooped £1m on a scratchcard.

Jackie Murphy, 61, was on her way home after a 12 hour shift at a care home when she stopped off at the village shop to buy her £5 National Lottery Millionaire 777s card.

As she slowly revealed the numbers, she was unable to believe her eyes and had to ask the shop assistant to check the numbers for her.

"Her smile just got bigger and bigger," said Jackie, who is due to marry her fiance John Potter, 54, next month. "Then she told me it was worth a million and I got a bit weak at the knees."

Jackie, who attended The Regis school in Tettenhall as a schoolgirl, now lives in Shrewsbury and was revealed as the winner at a ceremony at the Albrighton Hall Hotel today.
