Christmas Day created 25 new millionaires with a UK EuroMillions special draw.
And one of those has been revealed as Andrew Garth, 29, from Middlesbrough.
Andrew was actually hosting his boxing day birthday when he checked his ticket and discovered the fantastic news. Friends were convinced he was just joking with them.
He is now pursuing his dream of opening a live music venue in the area to cater to his own tastes of drum of bass.
