What have Joe and Jess Thwaite said about EuroMillions win?

Despite the earthshattering EuroMillions win, the couple have remained fairly calm about the whole event.

Kindly, Joe didn't wake his wife at 5am but instead waited for her alarm to go off before he told her.

Joe said: “I looked it up and saw we’d won.  I saw how much and I didn’t know what to do. 

"I couldn’t go back to sleep, I didn’t want to wake Jess up so I just laid there for what seemed like forever.

"I spent some time searching for property with no budget limit, which was a novelty!”

They shared hopes of visiting Hawaii on holiday, Jess said: "The win gives us time to dream, which we haven't had before."

Jess also shared that the children wanted a horsebox for their ponies instead of a trailer, so some funds would be spent on that.

The couple said they wanted to focus on making memories for their two kids rather than materialistic purchases.

Joe has already packed up work to go on adventures, he added: "I’d love to watch Gloucester or England rugby live with the kids but we have only really been able to watch on TV."
