    If its this lottery winner then your workmate has good reason not to speak to his brother.

    Sounds like it 'could' be the same person. The OP is based in Worcester, as is the winner

    no biggy, just asked if he chose the publicity, or it wasn't his choice (lottery winners who choose to publicise their win in the press tend to be of a certain demographic/mindset)

    The Sun does make me laugh...

    "But he kept quiet about his sinister past as he collected his £2.6million jackpot on Tuesday."

    What did they expect? "As he picked up the cheque he proudly announced to the public all his past sins"

    My ex-girlfriend's sister won £500,000.

    The gave her some money, £3000 (tight) and told her not to tell me as I would spend it all.

    Well, she told me as soon as she got home and we bought a tv, video, bike, loads of kfcs, mcdonalds and drinks.

    I did help her spend it and I would have spent it on her if I had the money.

    My mate's girlfriend's uncle's girlfriend (!) won £100,000 on a scratch card - they blew it fast and ended up in dept.

    A little like when a serial killer is unmasked and the neighbours say, "Well he always kept himself to himself."

    Of course he did, it's not something you tend to boast about.

    Was once upgraded to business class on a BA flight to the US, but wish I hadn't as got no sleep due to a family who'd (according to them, as they couldn't help shouting it out to attendants and the whole plane) won millions on the lottery, constantly ordering booze, talking/shouting loudly with kids of various ages running up and down and kicking things, totally playing up to the chav stereotype. They even mentioned to a couple of passengers quietly reading their newspapers that they might spot them in it.

    Thats the unfortunate thing about the lottery - it is unselective of who wins it.
