The contractor, who won a £ 105m Euromillion jackpot, spoils himself and his wife with a used van and car – and they live in their three-bed townhouse seven months after winning

  • Steve Thomson (42) and Ms. Lenka (41) became the ninth largest lottery winners
  • But still live in the same 120,000 pound townhouse in the village of West Sussex
  • Now it was believed that part of their £ 105 million had been used for a van and a car

It has been reported that a couple who won £ 105m in the Euromillions lottery were injected onto a used car and car.

Steve Thomson (42) and his wife Lenka (41) said they didn't want to be multimillionaires overnight to change them and refused to buy anything "too lightning".

The couple, their two sons and daughter still live in their modest three-bed house in the village of Selsey in West Sussex.

Her only major purchases so far were a used VW van for window manufacturer Steve and a Volvo XC90 for Lenka.

Steve Thomson (42) and his wife Lenka (41) said they didn't want to be multimillionaires overnight to change them and refused to buy anything "too lightning".

They are believed to be upgrading to a four-bedroom property, but Coronavirus has currently kept them in their family home.

"They were looking for a new home and I know they want to move soon, but at the moment they are still on their old property," said a friend of the sun.

"I think they tried to complete the process before the corona virus appeared, but they were late and that reset it.

"I am sure you will be happy to finally be able to spend part of the money won."

But the friend added that they "couldn't think of anything they bought".

After winning the EuroMillions jackpot, Steve, who is suitable for windows and conservatories, continued to work on completing his pending orders.

He is now believed to have quit after honoring all of the customers he was booked for at the time of his life-changing win.

Previously, he had promised to help the local community with the profits.

Independent contractor Thomson is believed to have stopped working after honoring all of the customers who had booked with him before winning.

Steve and the 41-year-old shop worker Lenka are said to have committed themselves to “doing things for the community” in the coastal town.

A family neighbor, Ellie Wood, 42, said earlier: “Steve and his wife are salt of the earth. I'm not shocked that Steve continues to do the jobs he had in his books – that's just the guy he is. He would never let anyone down. & # 39;

The father of three only noticed that he had won when he waited three days after the draw to be picked up for work.

He said: "I'm not sure if I looked at the first two lines, the third just jumped out and I could see immediately that they all matched. I started to tremble a lot. I knew it was a really big win, but I didn't know what to do.

"I went to my van, went back in, thought of knocking on a neighbor's door, went back to the van – I think I was about to have a heart attack."

He said his parents refused to believe he hit the jackpot and said, "We'll believe it when we see it."

Mr. Thomson added: "Now you believe it."

The couple, whose winning was the ninth-largest UK jackpot, declined to comment when asked.
