Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner has confessed she sometimes wishes she had never bought her winning ticket.
Jane Park was just 17 when she scooped £1million with the first ticket she had ever bought in 2013.
But she has now confessed the huge win has left her incredibly stressed and she is even said to be considering legal action against Camelot.
Ms Park, who now owns two properties and calls herself a developer, said: ‘I thought it would make it ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse. I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, “My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won.”
‘People look at me and think, “I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money.” But they don’t realise the extent of my stress.
‘I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?’
Ms Park, from Edinburgh said she believes the age limit of 16 for the lottery is too young, and people shouldn’t be able to buy tickets before the age of 18.
She also said she has struggled to find a boyfriend who wasn’t after her money, is sick of shopping for designer items, and misses cheap Benidorm holidays.
Ms Park is reported to be considering suing lottery bosses.
She told the paper she could see how people would just blow the money, but family advice stopped her.
She said: ‘My nana Anne told me, “You might as well have given me a gun.” I was like, “Nana, what are you talking about? This is the best thing ever?” But now I totally agree.’
However, she did admit she has never considered getting rid of the money to relieve herself of the burden.
The 21-year-old has regularly spoken about how winning the windfall changed her life, including difficulty with failed relationships.
She dumped ex-boyfriend Mark Scales in 2015, calling him a ‘snake’ and said friends had claimed he was after her money.
Ms Park is facing a charge of driving while over the limit at a McDonald’s drive-thru, said to have occurred last October, which she denies.
Last November she flashed her surgically enhanced 36FF breasts at a nightclub photo booth while on a Halloween night out with friends.
The morning after the event at Glasgow’s Distrikt club, Park tweeted that she hoped the photos did not make it onto Facebook because she had her ‘t*** out’.
But when the images appeared on the club’s Facebook page on Sunday, she took them in her stride and even shared them with her 17,000 online followers.
The former charity worker spent £4,500 on surgery to boost her breasts from 34B to 36FF at a clinic in Stirling, and has also spent money on lip fillers and Botox.
