Couple get engaged after lottery show

Last Updated: Tuesday 22nd February 2011, 10:52 am

Many of you tune into the Saturday night Lotto show and as such have probably enjoyed their ‘Secret Fortune’ gameshow. Well, if you tuned in last Saturday night you may have watched the most romantic lottery show ever, as a couple who appeared on the show, ended up getting engaged! Chris Hayes appeared on the show with long-term girlfriend Megan Hughes ended up proposing on prime time television!

The lottery winners walked away from the show with a modest £2,000 after answering general knowledge questions to win cash prizes, but one question was answered quickly and the prize might last a little longer. Immediately after the show was broadcast, Chris Hayes got down on one knee and asked Megan Hughes to marry him, and she agreed!

Lottery wins often bring about weddings and it’s often one of the first things that jackpot winners get on with arranging, but this is the first time we have heard of a marriage proposal on the BBC1 lottery show and may just be a unique occurrence!

We of course wish the couple every happiness, and while we can’t guarantee that every Saturday night Lottery show is as entertaining, it’s still worth tuning in every week; If you don’t get the chance to watch the show then you can still check your lottery results on our dedicated page!

It’s also now just one day to the lottery rollover, and the estimated jackpot of £7.4 million is plenty to pay for any wedding, no matter how extravagant so don’t forget your lottery tickets for that draw!
