Big dough for a British couple: Joe (49) and Jes Thwait (44) from Gloucester in southwest England won £184.26m in Euromillions last week. This is more than 220 million Swiss francs. Madness – almost a quarter of a billion!
This victory is a record for Britain. She wrote that the couple is richer than pop star Adele (34). “BBC”. And, like the British singer, it now appears that the Thwaites are superstars, too.
The couple was introduced to the audience at a party presented by TV presenter Dermot O’Leary (48). Joe Thwait revealed that he’s already quit his job. The man previously worked in the field of communications. Jess’s wife also thinks about what she’s doing with her hair salon job.
“Time to dream”
The couple received champagne and a giant check. The obligatory kisses were also exchanged. Wife Jess said the couple now have “time to dream.”
Jess Thwait has also been dreaming about Tuesdays a week ago. It’s the day the couple discovers their big win. Still asleep, her husband walks the dogs shortly after 5 am. He didn’t know what to do when he learned of the huge amount, he admits, “I couldn’t sleep again. I didn’t want to wake Jess so I lay there. It felt like an eternity.”

After profit: I looked at luxury real estate early in the morning
But at some point Thwaite got itchy fingers. He goes on the Internet and looks at luxury real estate. “Those who have no budget limit.” He hasn’t done that before. Then his wife wakes up. “I have a secret,” Joe Thwaitt tells her. I have to tell you something.”
Now the benchmark profit is no longer a secret. All Britain knows this. And now the whole kingdom knows how the Thwaites live: the family – a married couple with two children – recently moved to a country estate. Because Jess Thwait wanted a “rustic lifestyle” for her children, she tells the BBC. The family owned, among other things, three dogs, five chickens, and three ponies.
The family now has enough to expand their holdings. (nl)
