“I’ve had my eye on an Audi S5 convertible for a while so I’ll be able to treat myself to that now! I’m also going to splash out on a holiday to Tenerife for two weeks in September and I’ll put a little bit in the bank for a rainy day too.”

Offering his congratulations, People’s Postcode Lottery ambassador Matt Johnson said: “It’s been my absolute pleasure to present Ian with his cheque today. I’m over the moon for him and hope he has a fabulous time spending his prize. Make sure you’re signed up to play and it could be your door I’m knocking on next.”
