WHAT would you do if you won the lottery? For some humble folk, it just means continuing on with life as it was.
While some winners quit their day-to-day to party in lavish mansions and race supercars, others opt to stay in their jobs as dinner ladies, supermarket shelf-stackers and plumbers.
From driving second-hand Volvos to staying put in the family's council house, we look at the lucky winners who chose a more modest existence.
Council house and dinner lady job
Trish Emson still lives in her family’s old council house and has kept her job as a dinner lady, despite raking in £1.8million from the lottery in 2003.
The down-to-earth mum, who is in her fifties, said she would be “bored to tears” without her beloved job serving up meals to primary school children.
She has also kept up her frugal habits, driving a Kia and shopping in Primark.

Speaking to The Mirror last year, Trish said she “doesn’t like showing off and bragging about money” and “can’t be posh anyway”.
She added: “To look at me you wouldn’t think I was a millionaire, but if I have to dress up I feel fake, I prefer my jeans.”
Instead, Trish and her partner Graham Norton, who works as a decorator, bought two caravans and sun themselves on holidays in Benalmádena, Benidorm and Ibiza.
Trish, who got pregnant just weeks after her win after five years of trying, said that was a “better feeling” than winning the cash prize.
