Inside heartbreaking story of EuroMillions couple who won £161M & burnt through £100k a WEEK… before tragedy struck
A COUPLE who scooped an eye-watering £161million when they won the EuroMillions splashed the cash at an astounding rate of £100,000 a week before tragedy struck. Colin and Christine Weir landed the colossal prize money in 2011 and were Europe’s second-biggest winners until someone in Italy won a jackpot worth £193m in 2019. But at the time of Colin’s death in December 2019 his share of the prize money had dwindled by around £40m , having spent the millions living a life of luxury, forking out for sports cars, property and the football club he supported. It is said that at one point, Colin was burning through around £100k of his winnings a week. Not all of the money went on his taste for the high life though and the former STV cameraman also shared his immense wealth with family and friends as well as various charities.
