Although it's everyone's dream to win the lottery, no-one actually believes they'll hit the big bucks.

Which might explain why Sally Ann Wells, 63, and Jerry Gregory, 61, didn't check their ticket straight away.

In fact, the newly-retired couple from Kent didn't realise they'd bagged the top prize until a month after the numbers had been announced!

They only remembered to dig out their ticket after reading that the winners had come forward yet - and it was then they discovered that they could claim a whopping £1,471, 718.

Jerry told Kent Online: "I was in a state of disbelief. I never expected to see that. I checked it and the numbers came up the same on the computer."

And Sally was quoted in The Sun saying: "It reminded me to check, but I never thought I would actually win. It was surreal."

The fortunate couple are now planning a long holiday in America, as well as buying a Land Rover to travel around the English countryside.

Thank goodness they checked it when they did!
