The 71-year-old is thinking of spending his windfall to go back to university, visiting family in Mumbai, popping over to Qatar in the Middle East to see his daughter and enjoying a European mini-break.

Patel said:“I came to the UK in 1976 for university but with a growing family had to cut short my studies and find a job,” he said.

“I love my work, it keeps me young in mind and body, but who knows, maybe now I will be able to use some of the winnings to go back and finally complete my science degree.”Pratap said he bought a few Lucky Dip lines for the EuroMillions draw while doing the weekly shop at Asda in Forty Lane.

“The person on the counter put my ticket through the machine and handed me a slip of pink paper, explaining I’d had a win but that it was too much to pay out from the till and I needed to call Camelot,” he added.
