Mohammed Ahmed, 34, from Dudley won a brand new Mercedes and £120,000

Mohammed Ahmed, 34, was shaking in disbelief when dream car competition BOTB presenter Christian Wiliams turned up at his door to tell him he’d won this week’s prize - a brand-new Mercedes A45S AMG.

Since being founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away over £34m worth of prizes, including supercars, cash and holidays.

Thanks to the competition’s super summer special, Mohammed also won an extra £100,000 on top of the Mercedes and the £20,000 that he played for, taking the total prize worth to more than £170,000.

Mohammed said: “I’ve never even sat in a brand-new car before this is totally surreal.

“It’s a complete dream come true. It’s the next thing to winning the lottery I think."

When asked what he’ll do with the £120k cash, Mohammed said: “I think I’ll pay off some of the mortgage as well as build a new driveway - I’m going to need somewhere nice to park my new car!

“After that, I think I’ll treat my family and friends to a nice holiday somewhere hot!”

Christian Williams said: “I have the best job in the world, surprising winners with the cars of their dreams each week.

“You could just tell how much this meant to Mohammed, he was absolutely gobsmacked, I even thought he was going to faint at one point.

“He is such a lovely guy and I’m so happy for him. £120,000 is a lot of money that I’m sure will do wonders for him and his family and the car is a fantastic choice.”
