Britain’s youngest EuroMilions winner Jane Park has shared a throwback snap of herself seven years ago – after finding out she’d scooped the jackpot.
Jane Park, 24, from Edinburgh, scooped £1 million back in 2013 at the age of just 17, and was able to move from the small two-bedroom council flat she shared with her mother to a modern three-bedroom home with the latest amenities.
Taking to Instagram, she posted photos of herself first shared to Facebook in 2013, alongside a caption which read: ‘Just got the best news ever you’s won’t believe me so no point telling you’s. You’s will all see me in the paper this week!!!!!!’
It was followed by a second post which showed a photo of a teenage Jane holding a cheque with the seven figure sum, which she captioned: ‘I can’t even f*****g deal. Some 7 year Jesus.’
The lotto winner has since left her £8-an-hour admin job and embarked on a spending spree which included a second home, forking out over £50k on procedures including a Brazilian bum lift and a boob job, a £25,000 BMW, a £17,000 VW Beetle and a £18,000 Range Rover and a wardrobe of Louboutins.
And last week the modest winner appeared to take budget airline Ryanair for a girls’ trip to the Spanish party capital, admitting that she had not got the ‘bikini body she wanted due to COVID’ and that the island ‘wasn’t the same’ – but that she was having the ‘best time’.
Posting an array of swimsuit pictures as she modelled a bubblegum pink bikini on her hotel balcony, she wrote: ‘No quite the Ibiza body a wanted but COVID etc. ocean b I’m coming for you’ (sic).
Admitting Ibiza ‘wasn’t the same’, she then shared a picture as she got on the plane with a surgical mask.
Jane has been in and out of the spotlight since her win, dating both former Dundee footballer Jordan Piggot and X Factor contestant Sam Callahan.
After becoming Britain’s youngest lottery winner, she hit the headlines after splashing her fortune on everything from cosmetic surgery, as well as lip fillers and Botox, to luxury holidays.
After quitting her job she booked a two-month holiday in Magaluf and bought a chihuahua.
In 2017, in a bid to find Mr right, Jane set up a website asking for anyone who wished to date her to send in an application – and she even offered to pay the chosen one a £60, 000 annual allowance.
Within the first 24 hours, over 10,000 applicants had signed up in the hope of being her perfect match.
Sadly, in 2019 she revealed she had suffered a miscarriage, just days after announcing her pregnancy.
