Mr Anderson said the 30-year-old already had some plans for the jackpot sum.

He added: "I think she's got wedding plans, going on holiday and doing a bit of home decorating.

"She said it still hasn't sunk in yet, but it's certainly going to make the wedding a little bit more exclusive.

"And we said if she wants a game of bingo at the reception we would be very happy to do so."
