Lottery winner Graham Nield proposes to Amanda Vickers moments after scooping jackpot | Mail Online

Graham Nield, of Healey, had planned to ask Amanda Vickers, 48, to marry him before he proposed on Sunday, but kept losing his nerve. But after finding out his ticket matched all six Lotto numbers, Graham popped webblog the question. The 55-year-old said: I checked the numbers on my phone app. I have five lines and the first four had nothing but the last line had all six balls ticked. I just couldnt believe it so I gave Amanda the phone. She checked the numbers on her Ipad and started screaming and jumping up and down. I was caught up in the moment and just blurted out now will you marry me and she said told me yes, but it isnt because youve loads of money its because I love you. Former Batley Boys High School pupil Graham had been planning on proposing on a recent holiday to Tenerife. He said: Every morning for breakfast I got really nervous and in my head I kept telling myself to ask the question but it just would not come out. Despite picking up the six figure fortune, the couple both went to work at the Autoneum in Heckmondwike on Monday. Graham, who bought the ticket from Tescos in Bradford Road, attended all his morning meetings before calling the lottery office. The couple recently left their home in Hanging Heaton to move in with Amandas parents, James and Joan Vickers, both 72, in Dewsbury. Before the move, the pair visited Amandas parents to tell them the news. Graham sprung another surprise on his future in-laws asking for permission to marry their daughter and got down on one knee to propose. Despite the winnings, the pair are planning to keep their wedding low key. We are planning on getting married in the registry office and have a big party afterwards, said Graham. Amanda, who grew up in Dewsbury, wont be splashing the cash on a diamond ring, but instead will keep an eternity ring previously bought by her fiancee. The couple intend to share their winnings with their five children from previous marriages and are considering opening a cafe. MORE STORIES

"As she was jumping round the room going 'whoopee, whoopee', I said 'now can we get married please?'." The couple did not check their ticket until Sunday evening because they were up at 2am that day securing a pitch at a local car boot sale. They said they have just moved in with Ms Vickers' parents and have a lot of things to get rid of. They are still planning a further sale, but not this weekend. They are proposing to use their money sensibly and have no major plans beyond the wedding. Mr Nield said: "Obviously we're going to look after the family. "The rest of it - it doesn't feel real at the moment." Asked if Mr Nield was a romantic man, Ms Vickers said with a smile: "When we're on our own, but in front of people he puts a hard face on." Mr Nield bought his ticket from Tesco in Batley. His winning numbers were 15, 25, 26, 33, 34, 41. Copyright (c) Press Association Ltd. 2013, All Rights Reserved. MORE STORIES What is a Flash Cookie?
