I won £3m lottery jackpot and splashed out on a £10k boob job – but my win ended in heartbreak | The Sun

A LOTTERY winner splashed out £10k on plastic surgery for herself and her sisters – but her jackpot win ended in heartbreak.

Sarah Cockings, from Whitley Bay, scooped £3million on the lottery but the "whirlwind" of excitement was short-lived.

Sarah, who landed the life-changing jackpot in April 2005 celebrated with her partner of three years, Roy Kelley.

The couple got engaged when he bought her a £2,500 platinum diamond engagement ring.

But sadly the romance ended the following year.

She said: "It's very sad, but Roy and I have decided that we should split up.

Sarah was a student living at home with her parents, when she bought the winning ticket.

Speaking about the break-up, she said: "I've been going out with Roy for over three years and he's a really great bloke.

"I think we both got swept away with the fuss around the Lottery win and now things have settled down and life is back to normal we realise we're just not in love with each other anymore."

Sarah not only bought herself and her sisters boob jobs with her winnings, she also bought her parents a new house, reports Chronicle Live.

She added: "Everyone knows that some relationships just run their course.

"There's no one else involved and I know there'll be people who say it's because of my Lottery win or that I've changed, but that's just not the way it happened.

"Neither of us changed – I still go shopping in Top Shop and go out to the same pubs in Whitley Bay with my sisters.

"Winning the Lottery was just a bonus and other than things being a bit hectic and dealing with the media attention, it didn't change how we felt.

"We had split up a few times before the win, so maybe there were signs that it wouldn't work out eventually.

"But we both wanted it to, so we tried our best to keep things going."

Sarah is adamant that she won't be fooled by gold diggers now that she is single.

She said: "There are people out there like that who might want to date me because of my win, but I'm pretty switched on so I won't be manipulated by anyone like that."

And tragedy struck another couple, who scooped £2milllion a month after getting married.
