Lottery winner plans to take his family to the cinema


A Lincolnshire man, who scooped Europe’s biggest ever lottery prize, now believes he has enough money to take his wife and three children to a multiplex cinema.

Peter Thape (42) who became aware that he had all six numbers on Saturday evening, checked the cinema listings before even telling his wife of their windfall. A modest Thape hopes to book good seats for the latest Marvel nonsense, and allow his children to gorge upon genuine cinema fare, as opposed to smuggled-in pound-shop sweets that the children have sewn into their clothing.

‘Unfortunately, we still can’t afford the pick ‘n’ mix,’ said Thape.

‘If my spot the ball coupon comes in, we could probably get a tube of Pringles too,’ added Thape.
