Two lucky Lottery ticketholders will become instant multi-millionaires if their claims are verified by the National Lottery operator Camelot.
The winners beat odds of 1 in 76,275,360 to each scoop more than 45.5 million pounds after winning the EuroMillions lottery on Friday.
It is not known if the winners are part of a syndicate, but if they bought their tickets individually, they will have the same financial wealth as celebrities such as TV chef Jamie Oliver and film star Michael Caine, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
The three largest lottery prizes won in Britain were all won on the EuroMillions.
The winning numbers were 11, 19, 34, 43 and 45. The Lucky Star numbers were 5 and 9.
If one person, rather than a syndicate, owns either ticket it will be the UK’s biggest individual lottery win.
