He had just won £184,262,899 (approximately 217 million euros). A record in the UK. “It’s unbelievable, unreal”, describes Thwaite. After hearing the news, he waited for his wife Jess Thwaite to wake up and tell her. “I was going to work. And since I work with my mom and sister and can’t lie to them, I asked Joe if I could tell them. When I told my mother about it, So she cried and wept bitterly,” she says. “It’s a big relief for us. Like everyone with problems with bills, we’re all like normal families who have these problems, so it was a huge relief.
