In 2012, Adrian Bayford secured the UK’s second largest EuroMillions win - and the largest win in Euro - when he scooped an incredible prize worth over £148 million. Upon discovering that he and his then-wife Gillian had claimed such a grand sum of money, the couple described the event as life changing “not just for us, for everyone”.
Over three and a half years on from his massive win, Adrian’s life has certainly changed. According to The Sun, the 45-year-old has reportedly invested £10,000 on costumes and shoes that have been worn by international singing superstar Lady Gaga, as well as a number of the pop queen’s vinyl discs. The items are currently being stored at Mr Bayford’s £6 million mansion while he finalises plans to open a shop in which to sell the items.
Further reports suggest that the EuroMillions winner’s new store will also house Madonna, Oasis and Beatles memorabilia. Suffolk resident Bayford is no stranger when it comes to mixing music with business, having previously managed his own music shop before his colossal lottery win.
Lady Gaga may not be to everyone’s taste, but with tonight’s jackpot worth an estimated £38 million a win would allow you to indulge in your own passion, no matter how diverse. Tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer in participating countries. Best of luck!
