Somewhere in the UK is a Euro Millions ticket that could make the lucky holder as rich as Ed Sheeran or Gareth Bale – but the £51.7 million jackpot remains unclaimed after a week.

The National Lottery has urged players to check their tickets for the draw on Friday, July 28, when the entire jackpot went to one winner.

The lucky numbers on the night were 5, 9, 29, 31, 41 and Lucky Stars 2 and 4.

Should the golden ticket turn up the holder will be in line to win £51,702,049.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, global pop sensation Sheeran is worth £52 million, while Wales football international Bale is worth £54 million.

It is the fourth time this year a Euro Millions jackpot has been won in the UK.

In June, another player saw their bank balance grow by a cool £87 million overnight, while in February two ticket-holders split a £39.9 million jackpot – each banking £19.9 million.

The following week a UK winner scooped a £14 million jackpot.

Wherever the latest ticket may be, the owner has 173 days to claim the prize before the money is passed to good causes.
