Sheryl, who is 43, landed the prize after matching four numbers and the bonus ball. 

Sheryl explained how she only realised she had won six weeks after her numbers had come up, and that the news came at the best possible time: 

“It was amazing as I only found out six weeks after I had played. I was made redundant on the Monday morning, and on Tuesday I got a phone call from The Health Lottery saying that I had won. It was incredible!” 

She went on to explain how her win had helped her settle her debts and buy a new car: 

“I bought myself a little car and cleared all my debts, everything is sorted now!” 

Sheryl, who is continuing to play with direct debit has now got her sights set on winning the Saturday £100,000 jackpot: 

“I’m still playing every week, and now I just need to match five numbers and win £100,000!”
