Lottery winner has psychic to thank

A lottery winner has revealed that she bought her lucky ticket thanks to a psychic reading.

A mum of four from Lanarkshire, Frances Hooper, bagged a £200,000 jackpot after a fortune teller told her a windfall was on the way. Two days after the psychic made the prediction at the hairdresser's where Frances works, a People's Postcode Lottery entry form landed on her doormat and she signed up. And just a month later she scooped the massive prize during the Christmas Million draw.

Said Frances, ‘I was shaking like a leaf and I still can't believe it. I had a feeling we might have won £6,000 but I never imagined it would be this much. This is an incredible amount of money and it's going to make our lives so much easier.’

Husband Gavin revealed what the family plans to do with the money: ‘We've seen a house we really wanted and now we can buy it outright. It can get quite cramped with four kids but now all the children can have their own space.’
