One of Britain’s youngest ever lottery winners, Jane Park, has thanked scooping a EuroMillions prize for her dramatic 10-year transformation.
The 23-year-old former winner uploaded an old selfie from 2009 to her Instagram and compared it to a present-day snap – making light of how her £1million win has helped alter her look over the past decade.
Jane, who was a lucky ticket-holder at the age of 17, shared a photo of herself sporting big, backcombed hair and bright pink lipstick, with the caption: “Start of the decade” before a number of laughing emojis.
She then posted a glamorous shot of herself posing in front of a door, wearing a sparkly short silver dress, with the tag: “Thank you euro millions,” as reported in the Mirror.
Another photograph was then shared to her following of herself posing before a night out in her kitchen, captioned: “Thank God for cosmetic surgery.”
Since taking home the prize in 2013, which was won with Jane’s first-ever lottery ticket, she has splashed the cash on plastic surgery, including a boob job and bum lift.
Despite thanking EuroMillions for her new look, Jane has previously spoken out about how she believes Camelot, which operates the National Lottery, shouldn’t let people as young as her win such vast sums of money.
Speaking to the Sunday People three years ago, she said: “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?
“I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse.”
Jane is the second youngest lottery winner in the UK after Callie Rogers, who won in 2003 at the age of 16.
Callie has also criticised winning the lottery at a tender age and has previously described it as a ‘curse’.
But speaking with The Sun thirteen years following her £1.9m win, she revealed she had just £2,000 left but felt ‘happier than ever.’
