Lottery winner pops the question
A lottery winner has finally found the courage to pop the question to his long-term partner moments after finding out he had scooped a £6.6 million jackpot.
Graham Nield, 55, said he had attempted to ask Amanda Vickers, 48, to marry him many times but kept losing his nerve.
"We recently went to Tenerife and I was planning to ask Amanda to marry me," he said.
"But every morning at breakfast I got really nervous and the words just wouldn't come out of my mouth.
"When we found out on Sunday that we'd won, I blurted out 'Now will you marry me?' to which she replied 'Yes, but it isn't because you've won the money, it's because I love you'."
