Big lottery winners often think they can keep their old lives and carry on as usual.
But when you’re a particularly BIG winner, and your name and photos have been plastered all over the national papers, it’s just not likely anymore.
As Adrian Bayford and wife Gillian have discovered.
Their £148 Million EuroMillions win made them big news back in August. And Adrian had hoped to keep working in his music shop – but due to abusive visitors to the store begging for money he has now had to change his mind and close the store down.
He’s resolved to find another way to run a music business however and hasn’t been beaten yet.
