I won the lotto jackpot but still do bingo with my mates & drink Wkd Blue down the local pub | The Sun
IF you won the lottery, what would your new life look like?
In 2013, Jane Parks was able to discover the answer, as she became the UK’s youngest EuroMillions winner at just 17, bagging £1million.
However, ten years down the line, it appears she lives a much more down-to-earth life than you may imagine.
While reports say she's worth £3million today, she isn’t flash with her cash, and instead of popping expensive bottles and jetting First Class, she prefers a humble night out with her pals.
The Edinburgh-based Lottery winner uploaded snaps from the weekend where she played a game of bingo at the local pub and sipped Wkd Blues.
Jane was celebrating her “bestie’s baby shower” and had a comical response when she managed to get a full house during the game.

But that’s in keeping with down-to-earth Jane, who famously described herself as the B&M version of Love Island influencer Molly-Mae Hague.
At the time of her win Jane was earning just £8-an-hour as an admin temp in her hometown of Edinburgh and living in a two-bed council flat with her mum Linda.
As soon as the money landed in her account, she celebrated by booking a two-month trip to Magaluf.
She also bought herself a chihuahua, a fancy car, and lots more designer goodies that most would envy.
Jane also invested her money in property, purchasing not one, but two new homes, and underwent surgery in Turkey.
Jane has spent around £50,000 of her lottery winnings on surgery including a boob job, a bum lift, liposuction, dental veneers, Botox, lip enhancements and fillers.
Her first boob job in 2013 saw her go from a 34B to 36FF, costing £4,500.
She described them at the time as "up there with the best things I bought".
Throughout all of that, she’s maintained her love of a bargain and still enjoys shopping at popular stores like B&M.
And she’s previously opened up about the whirlwind experience of winning the Lottery and confessed that at times it has made her “miserable”.
In an episode of American show Dr Phil titled The Curse Of The Lottery, Jane admitted: “I don’t regret any of the money I spent, my only regret would be going so public with the win.

“When I won it was a very quick turnover, it was massive. At the time it was kind of crazy, and it’s even crazier looking back.”
She continued to say that she’d initially “splashed out a bit” but that she’d then calmed down when one of her aunts told her to be sensible and look at a property portfolio.
