A secretary is celebrating a £9 million Lotto windfall - just days after her husband had a dream that their numbers would come up.
Louise Gough, from Bridgnorth, Shropshire, revealed that she had scoffed at her husband Keith's premonition before scooping £9,001,406 in last Wednesday's rollover draw.
The 54-year-old told a news conference at a hotel on the Shropshire-Staffordshire border: "A few nights ago Keith told me he had dreamt we had won the lottery.
"I dismissed it and told him that 'everyone has those kind of dreams' and to forget about it." Mr Gough, who now plans to trade in his T-registered Skoda for a top-of-the-range Jaguar, told reporters that he had envisaged winning a comparatively meagre £285,000.
The bakery worker, also aged 54, explained: " I dreamed that we had won £285,000 and I thought that would set us up for life.
"Now this has happened and I am having to pinch myself. I have never had any dreams come true before and now I suppose I don't have to have any dreams!"
The Goughs, who have been married for 25 years and have two children, also plan to invest in a Winnebago-style caravan and to treat their family.
Mr Gough discovered that his wife had won the jackpot on Thursday while checking her numbers on Teletext.
He at first thought she had matched just four balls to win £62, but dashed to his wife's office at a legal firm when he discovered she had landed more than £9 million.
Mrs Gough said: "When Keith came into the office, he was shaking and looked shocked and he said 'You've won the lottery, you've won £9 million'.
The couple had faced a choice between taking a holiday or buying a new cooker, Mrs Gough said.
But she added: "Now that's not a problem."
The winning ticket, matching balls 7, 11, 12, 37, 42 and 45, was a Lucky Dip bought at Turners Top Shop in Bridgnorth.
