Woman Wins £1million On EuroMillions Minutes After Getting All Clear From Breast Cancer

For us, a good day is a painless commute into work, some good feedback from our boss, and getting home to find Amazon order has arrived in the post.

That was until we heard about laundry worker Lynne Price's 'good' day, which involved finding out she was cancer-free and winning the lottery 10 minutes later.

Lynne, 55, from New Tredegar in South Wales, had just opened a letter telling her that her breast cancer scan results has come back all clear.

Ten minutes later, her husband David came crashing through their front door after rushing home from work to tell her they'd won £1 million.

"I can't tell you what I said, it's too rude, but I was in total shock," said the mum-of-three. "I was shaking and totally lost for words which never happens.

"I went and had a bath for two hours and just lay there trying to take it all in."

David, 53, had checked the couple's ticket at work and discovered he and Lynne had won big on the Euromillions Millionare Maker.

"I went home to tell Lynne but she had some big news of her own," David recalls. "The letter saying she had the all clear is worth more than a million to me."

We're not crying, you're crying.

In October, she had gone for a scan, and discovered she had the all clear on the same day as the couple's win.

Now that's what you call a lucky streak.

So what do they plan to with their winnings? Lynne and David are planning a holiday to escape the UK during the general election.

Not a bad shout to be fair.

To add to that, David, a keen climber, will be able to pay off his upcoming three-week expedition to the base of Mount Everest in one go.

The couple are distant relatives with Ade Goodchild, 58, who won £71 million in March, and David's sister Judith who was part of a Cardiff cigar factory syndicate that took home a fortunes in the 90s.

David, a British Airways worker, said his work friends nicknamed him 'Lucky Day' before his win.

"It was always a bit of a joke, but now it's really come true. I still can't quite believe it," he said.

"We've been doing the lottery since it started - you put your money on but you don't really expect to win a million." David picked up his ticket while picking up a pint of milk at his local corner shop.
