A lucky player could become the UK's biggest EuroMillions winner if they scoop the £167 million rollover jackpot this week.

With no EuroMillions player matching all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers in Tuesday's draw, the jackpot on Friday is an estimated £167 million.

The current record-holders for the biggest ever lottery win are Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, Scotland, who won £161 million in 2011.

"Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of banking a life-changing prize."
