Al said: ‘I knew who he was as soon as I saw him. What a way to end the holiday. And to mark the end of a very strange few months.’

‘My older son Ben and I both play, we always talk about the lucky people that win, and now I can’t believe that’s me.

‘The £10,000 cash is just the icing on the cake really. We want to move house next year so the money will be a huge help for us with that. Thank you BOTB.’

Christian, who surprises winners all over the world every week, was thrilled to give Al the news.

‘I felt a bit guilty turning up to Al’s family holiday uninvited but as soon as I saw his face I knew we were welcome - he knew exactly what was happening the moment he opened the door,’ he said.
