Ten years on from hitting the jackpot at just 17, Britain's youngest EuroMillions winner has claimed she still hasn't spent all her winnings.

To be given one million quid as a teenager and to not blow it on FIFA points or a massive PrettyLittleThing haul is quite the achievement, if you ask me.

Jane Park, who was 17 at the time, won £1 million back in 2013 with the first lottery ticket she had ever bought.

But as Biggie Smalls once said: "Mo' money mo' problems," and this was definitely the case with Jane.

Although we'd all love to have 'millionaire problems' as opposed to just 'plain problems', the young lottery winner previously told LADbible about how she grew to ‘hate’ her new life due to the media attention.

Jane, from Edinburgh, said: "Literally it came to a point where I was like 'I hate this'.

"I remember just thinking 'I'm so young' and 'Why would anyone put someone this young through these emotions'.

"I remember my nana saying 'It's like giving a kid a gun in their hand and not telling them what to do with it'.

"I understand how easily your life could just spiral out of control. I could feel it happening."

And more recently on an episode of Dr Phil titled The Curse of the Lottery, Jane said: "I don't regret any of the money that I've spent.

"My only regret would be going so public."

While Jane has been open about her spending habits since the big win, which has seen her purchase a new home, multiple cars, designer clothes and cosmetic procedures, she then added: "I have not even spent all of the money and they seem to think they know more about my life.

"It's hard because when I was younger I read the comments and it affected me and these people have never met me and they've probably never even seen me.

"I wish I'd never won it, I wouldn't wish it on anyone."

Jane also previously spoke about the horrendous abuse she received following her win.

During an interview with Tyla, she said: "When the story came out that I was going to sue I literally had the worst amount of abuse online.

"People were saying like 'Die', I had acid attack threats, it was literally hectic.

"People were hating on me and I was just this young girl who just wanted to be heard. I remember feeling like my life was s**t.

"I thought it was going to be amazing, I was going to be this big massive celebrity, constantly being on red carpets and stuff.

"I was literally sitting in a three-bedroom house alone, crying myself to sleep."
