A record £184m EuroMillions jackpot has been won by a French ticket-holder, the National Lottery has said.

The winning numbers were 21, 26, 31, 34, 49 and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 05.

The amount went unclaimed after Tuesday's draw - and led to a surge of entries for Friday's game.

The winner, who now has 60 days to claim their prize, would be able to count themselves richer than singer Adele, who has a net worth of £130m, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

Now, the next jackpot up for grabs on Tuesday 19 October sits at an estimated £14 million.

So far this year there have been five UK EuroMillions jackpot winners, including the anonymous winners of £122 million in April and £111 million in June.

The biggest recent UK winners to go public were Frances and Patrick Connolly from Northern Ireland, who scooped a £115 million prize in 2019.

That year a UK ticket holder also bagged themselves a £170 million jackpot but decided to remain anonymous.

Where the ticket was bought or whether the winner is an individual or a syndicate will not be revealed unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.

EuroMillions tickets are available in nine European countries - France, Spain, UK, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland.

It has been running since 2004.
