No details about the lucky person have been revealed at this stage, as winners can opt to go public or stay anonymous after hitting the jackpot.

They'll now pick up a big cheque for a whopping £4,392,003.

Organisers Camelot had been urging people to check their tickets, in a bid to prevent the prize from going unclaimed before the deadline.

"We're delighted that the winner of this amazing jackpot prize has now come forward and we hope that they will enjoy their win," a National Lottery spokesperson said.

"It would have been awful if the ticket-holder had missed out on this substantial and life-changing amount of money."

Unclaimed prizes go into the National Lottery Good Causes fund and the deadline in this case had been 29 November.
