A lucky British ticket holder won more than £45m in Tuesday night's EuroMillions draw, Camelot has confirmed.

The winner has still to claim the £45,160,170.50p after picking the winning numbers 3, 15, 17, 28, 33 and lucky stars 2 and 4.

The jackpot is the seventh largest ever to be won in the UK and came just few weeks after British couple Gareth and Catherine Bull pocketed nearly £41m on the EuroMillions draw on January 20.

The biggest-ever EuroMillions prize was a £161m jackpot won by Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, Ayrshire, in 2011.

A spokesperson for Camelot said: "It is fantastic news to have another UK winner so soon after Gareth and Catherine Bull from Mansfield.

''These big draws help raise the £30m for good causes every week.''

Camelot said Friday's jackpot is an estimated £12m.
