The grandad-of-three and wife Trisha, also 51, wanted to be close to pals so decided to stay in Boston, Lincs – rather than splash their cash on a manor elsewhere, reports the Mirror.

A far cry from a stately home the four-bedroom property is by no means a two-up two-down.


It comes complete with indoor pool, a gym, triple garage and sits on two acres of grounds.

Andrew and Trish also bought two cars with their winnings.

But Frugal Andrew doesn’t have plans to kick back and flash his cash just yet – in fact he plans to honour all of the jobs he booked before his win.

He won £76,369,806 when his numbers came in on November 2 last year but only found out about his new found fortune when he checked his ticket six weeks later.

Andrew and Trish’s win was the 12th biggest win ever in the UK.

After going public Andrew said he had found his dream home and told reporters: “The offer was expected.

“The whole family will be looked after.”
