The prize reached its 210-million-euro cap – meaning it could not climb any higher than the estimated £180 million value in sterling.

The winning numbers were 6, 12, 22, 29, 33 and the lucky stars were 6 and 11.

The winner is more than twice richer than Harry Styles whose worth is estimated at around £74million.

And they have also overtaken sports superstars Roger Federer, £75.8million, Cristiano Ronaldo £75million,and Lionel Messi, £74.3million, according to the Forbes rich list.

Meanwhile 12 people across all the countries involved won a whopping £1,927,121.30.

And 35 people received a £9,034.80 prize.

The biggest lottery win in the UK was £170m in 2019 – which was claimed by an anonymous punter.

The previous holders were Colin and wife Christine Weir who scooped £161m in 2011 – making them richer than the Beckhams at the time.

The EuroMillions draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday with each ticket costing £2.50.

Every ticket also bags you an automatic entry into the UK Millionaire Maker, which guarantees at least one player will pocket £1 million in every draw.

Due to the pandemic, National Lottery players are encouraged to play online or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to only buy their tickets in person in line with government guidance.

The chance of winning matching all five EuroMillions numbers and the two bonus balls is 1 in 139,838,160 – but you’ve got to be in it to win it.
