A lucky ticket-holder has scooped £40m to become the seventh UK Euromillions winner this year.

It comes just weeks after builder Steve Thomson and his wife Lenka won £105m.

Tuesday’s winning Euromillions numbers were 18, 31, 32, 38, 48 and the Lucky Stars were 04 and 12.

The winner, who has not been announced yet, will take home £40,957,696.60.

Andy Carter, from The National Lottery, said: “One very lucky UK ticket-holder has scooped tonight’s entire £40m Euromillions jackpot. This massive win follows hot on the heels of Steve and Lenka Thomson, who won an incredible £105m last month.

“Tonight’s big winner has scooped the seventh Euromillions jackpot banked in the UK this year.”

Speaking about his huge win last month, father-of-three Mr Thomson said he felt like he was having a heart attack when he realised he had the winning numbers on his Lucky Dip ticket.

He said landing the jackpot meant “it’s going to be a good Christmas”, but pledged he would not give up his job.

Mr Thomson said his and his wife’s priority would be buying a new house with a bedroom each for their daughter and their two sons, who currently share in a “shoebox” three-bedroom house in Selsey, West Sussex.

A UK ticket-holder won the £170m Euromillions jackpot in October, making them the UK’s biggest winner.

The previous biggest UK winners were Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, who won £161m in July 2011.

A £123m jackpot was won by a UK ticket-holder in June and a UK winner scooped £38m on the Euromillions in April.

Ade Goodchild, from Hereford, bagged £71m on March 15 and Patrick and Frances Connolly, from Northern Ireland, won £114.9m on New Year’s Day.
