A Lottery winner rang her hubby to tell him about her £193,055 jackpot win – only for him not to believe her.
Winner Pamela Macaskill scooped the huge payout when 101 residents of the Orkney Islands shared a bumper £3million People's Postcode Lottery prize.
But when she called her bricklayer hubby Angus to break the good news, he wasn't having any of it.
Pamela explained: "Angus didn't believe me! He wasn't taking anything in!"
Angus – who was working nearby – soon raced home and learned Pamela had indeed scooped the huge prize and now could be in for a treat of his own.
Mum-of-two Pamela added: "He'll get a new quad bike if he's lucky."
Lucky Pamela was one of two neighbours who scooped a whopping £193,055 each when their postcode, HS6 5BJ, was revealed as the full winning postcode. The remaining 99 residents in the sector received different cheque amounts depending on how many tickets they play with.
Reacting to the win, Pamela said: "I'm just numb, my mouth is dry. I'm completely speechless. You just don't believe it will ever happen. I mean that's massive isn't it?! My palms have not stopped sweating. The whole place has been buzzing. It's such a big amount for such a small community. I know pretty much everyone here! It means so much to all of us."
The family planned to spend some of their fortune on a luxury holiday. Pamela added: "I love Disney so I might take my girls to Florida, but I guess I should go somewhere a bit different with this amount. Maybe Finland, or somewhere hot. It's my sister's fortieth soon so we can take a girls' trip away. I don't know, there are so many options!"
