A car mechanic and racing driver from Coulsdon will be unveiled tomorrow as the winner of a whopping £108m Euromillions jackpot.

The lucky player won £107,932,603.20 in Friday’s EuroMillions draw.

The man, who becomes Britain's fourth biggest national lottery winner, was not named by operator Camelot today.

But tomorrow morning he will go public at a press conference in Dorking, Surrey, and reveal what he plans to do with his win.

He scooped the jackpot with numbers 6,24,25,27,30 and lucky stars 5 and 9.

A lottery spokesman said: "This massive win ranks fourth biggest on the National Lottery rich list."

The ticket holder became richer than the likes of Robbie Williams and George Michael in a matter of seconds.

A National Lottery spokesman said: "We're delighted Friday's ticket-holder has come forward to claim this amazing prize.

"This massive win ranks fourth biggest on the National Lottery Rich list and is the first EuroMillions jackpot to be won here in the UK so far this year."

The largest ever Euromillions win on these shores was for Colin and Chris Weir, of Largs, Ayrshire, who won £161million in 2011.

The couple, from Haverhill, Cambs, split soon after, blaming the money for wrecking their marriage.
