The winner will then decide whether to go public and share their news.

No information will be given on whether it is an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said: "It is wonderful news that a lucky ticket-holder has claimed this incredible prize.

"We will now focus on supporting the ticket-holder through the validation and help them start to enjoy their win."
