This sounds like everyone's dream come true - a woman thought she'd won £3,000 on the lottery, but it was actually £3million!

When mum-of-two Jenn Burston initially checked the lucky dip she'd put on online, she was ecstatic to have won anything.

But when the 27-year-old from Exetor, Devon, re-checked her numbers on a larger tablet with her husband Ian, she realised she'd matched five balls as well as the bonus ball.

Her £3,000 win had suddenly turned into £3,062,272 in a matter of seconds - how incredible is that?!

She said: "Once we realised it was £3million neither of us knew what to do next - so I called my mum and my husband called his dad, and by this time, it must have been after 11pm.

"I keep asking myself, just how do you spend that sort of money? I'm sure with £3million in the bank, the knack will come to us."

But Jenn is determined to remain down-to-earth, despite her new wealth and is going back to work over the festive season: "I've only just got back off maternity leave and I can't let them down," she said.

It seems this Christmas win could not have gone to anyone nicer. Congratulations, Jenn!
