The family made a £ 1 million donation to the SNP shortly after winning.

2. Adrian and Gillian Bayford, of Suffolk, took home more than £ 148 million in August 2012.

The marriage ended just 15 months after their new jackpot-winning life, with the stress of the money being the reason they had to split.

At the time, a spokesman for Ms. Bayford said, “Gillian Bayford confirms that her marriage to Adrian has ended irretrievably and that they have split up.”

It came after Ms. Bayford was forced to deny having an affair with the couple’s gardener, Chris Tovey.
