Contestants needed five main numbers plus two Lucky Stars to win the colossal amount of money.

Three Brits also won £93,000 in the draw after guessing six of the seven numbers.

Tonight's mega jackpot could buy 826 Ferrari 488s, or pay for 155 million copies of today’s Sun.

The jackpot winner is under no obligation to come forward and can choose to receive the money anonymously.

They are now Britain's third biggest Euromillions winner of all time.

Tonight’s National Lottery EuroMillions winning numbers are: 14, 15, 22, 35, 48.

The Lucky Stars are: 03 and 08.

Meanwhile, the winning Thunderball numbers are: 5, 15, 24, 27, 31.

The Thunderball is 12.

And in the Millionaire Maker Selection - one UK millionaire has been created. They have the code: HJML89118

It is the third time a British ticket has won a jackpot of over £150 million this year.

One lucky winner bagged £195million in July, making them richer than Grammy-winner Adele - who is worth around £150m, according to the Sunday Times rich list.

UK ticketholders Joe Thwaite and wife Jess won £184million in the May EuroMillions draw earlier this year.

Despite their astonishing new wealth, one of their first purchases was a second-hand Volvo.

Another life-changing win of £3.6 million was awarded to Helen and Lee Kuchczynski in July 2022.

Helen, 58, said: “We have rented all our married life, and with retirement looming didn’t think that would ever change.

"Instead of the usual Chinese takeaway in front of the telly to celebrate my birthday, we bought a whopping detached house with all the mod cons – it’s even got electric gates!"

Lee, 52, hasn't missed a beat either as he's swapped in an HGV for his dream car, an Audi RS4 Avant.
