THE lucky couple who won �45.5 million in the Euromillions jackpot were named this morning - and told how they celebrated with a traditional Sunday lunch washed down with a couple of bottles of champagne at their local restaurant.

Les Scadding, 58, and his wife Samantha Peachey-Scadding, 38, from Caerleon, South Wales, could hardly believe their luck and had to double check their winning ticket.

Mr Scadding said: “When I asked the people behind the counter to check the numbers the machine just printed out a pink slip telling me to contact Camelot.

“I thought I might have won around �50,000 and I rushed home to tell Samantha.”

They are thought to be the seventh set of lottery millionaires to come from Gwent in the last three years.

A group of yet-to-be-named IT workers from Liverpool are also celebrating their share of Friday's night whopping �91 million jackpot.
