We love this story – a couple who were both made redundant and were forced to sell their family home won £1million on the lotto!

Wayne and Desiree Home were forced to downsize to a smaller house after they both lost their jobs more than 18 months ago.

Their luck seemed to be on a downward spiral, as Desiree was also battling bowel cancer at the same time.

But things suddenly took an upward turn when the 57-year-olds entered the EuroMillions - and won.

The Kent-based pair are now enjoying their new fortune and treating their three kids and four grandchildren.

And even better news, Desiree is now also in remission.

Former IT project manager Wayne told the Daily Mirror: "We've gone from living day by day to relaxing day by day."

It looks like these two will have a happy ending after all!
