We have all heard stories about people becoming millionaires overnight when they win the lottery. But a really endearing story is that of Colin and Chris Weir. The two have been married for over 30 years and are pensioners now. They haven’t been working for a while because of health problems. But this Scottish couple shot to fame when they won a staggering GBP 161,653,000 in the EuroMillions lottery draw.
The win certainly took them by surprise, but becoming millionaires perhaps hasn’t sunk in yet. When interviewed, the couple didn’t talk about buying a new house or taking a holiday to an exotic destination. They just said they celebrated with a glass of wine like they do on Christmas. They were especially overjoyed because they could finally afford to give their two kids, age 24 and 22, their first driving lessons which were too expensive for them till now.
