A UK ticket-holder has successfully claimed a £123,000,000 EuroMillions jackpot, but has chosen to remain anonymous.

Camelot made the announcement today, calling it the third biggest win ever.

The very lucky person actually won the money on June 12, but was delayed in claiming their prize.

The current record holders for the biggest ever lottery win are Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, Scotland, who won £161,000,000 in 2011.

Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148,000,000 in August 2012.
