Paddy McGuinness reveals £58million Euromillions winner worked on his house and is the ‘nicest lad’ – The Sun
PADDY McGuinness has revealed that £58million Euromillions winner worked on his house and is the 'nicest lad.'
It comes after Ryan Hoyle, 38, was announced as the winner of the large sum of cash yesterday.
The TV presenter, 48, took to Twitter to congratulate the self-employed dad and described him as a 'nice lad.'
He wrote: "Really pleased for this guy. He worked on my very first house and you couldn’t meet a nicer lad. Congratulations Ryan (George)."
The joiner, from Rochdale, had to drive over to his parents to confirm the big win as he couldn't believe his luck after looking at the numbers.
His massive winning means that he is now £6million richer than Harry Potter actress Emma Watson – and the 20th richest on the National Lottery richlist.
Ryan, who has an 11-year-old daughter, said: “I always wake up early and was sat on the edge of my bed but couldn’t work out what I was looking at.
"The email linked to my account which looked like a lot of numbers and I thought it might be millions but I couldn’t believe what my eyes were seeing. I couldn’t make sense of it and really needed to talk to someone so I called Mum and Dad.
"It was 6am so they assumed that I had locked myself out of the flat somehow as it has happened before.
“I was shaking and really needed a second opinion so I jumped in the van and drove round to Mum and Dad’s house.
"I stuck to the government guidelines and kept a safe distance outside and passed the phone through the window for them to double-check for me.
"They even checked my numbers against another website, just to be sure. It was real – I had won £58M!”
He has currently been working on his brother's house and plans to finish the job, but after that, he's not sure if he'll need to work again.
Ryan also plans to see the family right so that they can all retire by the end of this week.
He said: "Right now I’m not focused on spending it on myself. I’m going to see the family right as well as my closest friends.
"Mum works at the local school as a cleaner and has been struggling with a sore hip for years, so it would be great to see her take early retirement straight away.
"She was down for a hip replacement but all operations are on hold at the moment due to the Coronavirus crisis, so maybe I can help with that too.
"And this win means my Dad can stop working at the factory by the end of the week too.
“It’s also been a tough time for one of my brothers who recently suffered a brain haemorrhage.
"He is a digger driver and was due back at work soon, so I can help him now and it means he’s not forced to go back to work. Basically Mum, Dad and my brother can all retire this week.”
He also plans on taking his daughter to the waterparks in Florida and Disney Land after the travel restrictions are lifted due to Covid-19.
