“This is the seventh EuroMillions jackpot winner this year, and comes just as we are celebrating the creation of 4,000 National Lottery millionaires.

“The ever-growing millionaires club is gaining around six new members a week, changing the lives of thousands of people across the UK.

“A jackpot win of £35m is truly life changing and we’re delighted the ticket-holder has come forward and can now begin to enjoy their prize.”

Earlier last month a UK player banked £22.4 million, and June saw the biggest win so far this year with one ticket-holder celebrating a £93 million win.
