Infamous lottery winner Michael Carroll who blew his £9.7million fortune on drink, drugs and brothels has remarried his ex-wife who left him after he cheated on her with prostitutes.
The 38-year-old, dubbed the ‘Lotto lout’, was just 19 when he scooped the multi-million jackpot in 2002 after buying a £1 ticket.
But the lotto winner, who was working as a binman in Norfolk at the time of his win, blew his fortune on drink, drugs, fast cars, holidays and sex parties and was bankrupt and on benefits by 2013.
His high-stakes lifestyle also brought a swift end to his marriage to wife Sandra Aitken, now 38, who accused him of sleeping with prostitutes.
However the pair remarried during an intimate ceremony last Sunday and are now reportedly living a quiet life in Belfast, the Daily Record reports.

A source told the Daily Record: ‘Mickey’s calmed down a lot and has been living quite a nice wee life and working hard.
‘Him and Sandra buried the hatchet and got back together and it has all worked out well for them.
‘It happened very quickly in the last few months but they fell right back in love and are really happy together now. What’s in the past has been forgotten about.’
The couple, who share a teenage daughter, tied the knot in 2003 but they divorced in 2008 after the self-styled King of Chavs entered a high-stakes lifestyle following his lottery win.
In 2009, Sandra described Carroll as a ‘big shot’ who began ‘frittering away £10million on drink and drug binges’.
She told The Mirror: ‘Mickey thought he was a big shot, better than everyone because he had money, and he surrounded himself with hangers-on.
‘I left because he was frittering away £10million on drink and drug binges and was cheating on me with prostitutes.’
After their split Carroll, who was frequently pictured with branded jewellery and sportswear, continued to live in extravagance and appeared in court more than 30 times, mostly arriving in sports cars and drinking booze.
He also made no secret of his womanising, and once claimed he had bedded some 4,000 women.

The lottery winner also admitted to becoming a ‘full-blown alcoholic’, and said he would go on extravagant holidays to the Costa del Sol.
He was handed an ASBO for terrorising his neighbours and was jailed for five months in 2004 after failing to comply with a drug treatment order imposed as part of a sentence for cocaine possession.
His accountant warned him in 2005 that he was down to his last million, and in February 2006 he was jailed for nine months for affray.
By February 2013, he was declared bankrupt and found himself back on Jobseeker’s Allowance.
At his lowest point he moved into a hotel for homeless people for three months while he struggled to find work due to his reputation.
He then worked at the Walkers biscuit factory in Aberlour, before getting a licence to work in an abattoir.
In 2019, it was revealed Carroll had moved to Scotland and was working seven days a week as a coal miner.
He told The Mirror: ‘It didn’t go wrong – it was the best 10 years of my life for £1. I don’t look back with any regrets, that’s for sure.’
