EuroMillions Winner Matt Topham 'Bans Mother Julie Gamble From Meeting Future Children'
A man who scooped a £45m EuroMillions jackpot has banned his estranged mother from meeting his future children, according to reports.
The 22-year-old moved into his father's house after his parent's marriage broke up.
The Sun reports that he believes his mother mistreated other family members, and forced him out of her life.
Julie Gamble, who wrote to her son after his lottery win, told The Sun: "Whatever Matt says I will always love him as a son.
"He said he doesn't want me in his life, or his fiancee Cassey's - nor their future children.
"His letter reads as though he hates me. But how can he hate me when he doesn't even know me any more?"
Gareth and Catherine Bull were the last big UK winners nearly three weeks ago when they banked £40,627,241 after matching the numbers from a Lucky Dip ticket on the EuroMillions draw on January 20.
The biggest EuroMillions prize was a £161m jackpot won by Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, Scotland, last year, but this is the second big win in Nottinghamshire this year.
The latest winners matched five numbers and two lucky stars in Tuesday's draw.
A Camelot spokesman said: "It is fantastic news to have another UK winner so soon after Gareth and Catherine Bull from Mansfield won £40m.
"These big draws help raise the £30m the National Lottery generates for Good Causes every week."
Camelot said Friday's jackpot is an estimated £12m.
