Rebecca scooped the money with 10 other lucky winners after CT20 3NG  won the weekly People’s Postcode Lottery.

The divorced mum of two, who works as a probation officer, said she never thought she would win the massive amount.

A grinning Rebecca said: “That is unbelievable. It’s going to be spend-spend-spend, definitely.

“I’m going to have the best time ever and do some nice things with some nice people. We’re going to have an amazing few years.”

After landing the windfall, Rebecca shared the long-awaited wishlist that she now plans to tick off.

Among other things, she plans to treat her entire family, spoil her kids and go on a lavish jet-setting vacation.

Sharing how she will spend the money, the mum said: “I’ll start by taking the family out for a meal at a Turkish restaurant. It means neither Mum nor I will have to cook. Tonight’s on me, so that’s going to be really nice.

“I’ll spoil the kids absolutely rotten. My son is massively into Fallout, so I will be buying Fallout merchandise.

“My daughter wants to go to Walt Disney World in Florida and swim with dolphins, so we may do something like that.

“It’s my birthday later this month and my son’s is the day after mine, so he is already making a list.”

Rebeca revealed how she plans to go to the Balearic Islands and party with her friends before going to Paris and New York with her family.

She added: “I’m going to a hen do in Malaga next month, so that might buy some drinks and maybe a new bikini.”

“We’ve got a nice holiday in France with my parents later in the summer and I would love to take my mum to New York.”

However, Rebecca said a part of her winning cash will go into the transformation of her garage, which she wants to use to keep her sewing machine.

She said: “I can do some extra stuff in the house. My neighbour has just had the garage converted and it’s amazing. It would be an extra room for visitors to stay and I could keep my sewing machine in there.”

Meanwhile, Kendra and Simon Charman also scooped £66,666 alongside their neighbours in Folkestone, Kent in the lotto.

Kendra says she’ll let her husband spend it if he finishes a list of tasks set five years ago.

She told her husband he could get a new motorbike after their win – but only if he obeyed one rule.

Petrolhead Simon still has his sights set on some new wheels – like a Porsche 911 or upgrading his Kawasaki ZX-9R.

He said: “I like the Porsche 911, there are so many variants.

“As far as motorbikes go, I like the MV Augusta F4. It’s got four little exhausts. I love the styling of it.”

One of Kendra’s neighbours, Army veteran Malcolm Blanche, managed to scoop cash too – but he landed four times as much.

The 72-year-old won a massive £266,664 in the saw People’s Postcode draw by playing the same numbers.

Malcolm and his wife Carolyn bought two tickets each when they signed up for the lotto draw two years ago.

And even when Carolyn tragically died in 2019, he carried on playing with her tickets as well as his own.

Malcolm said: “I just decided to keep them on. She’d be over the moon and shaking right now.

With People’s Postcode Lottery, 33% of the ticket price goes to charities and good causes.

To date, players have raised more than £1.3 Billion for thousands of deserving projects across Great Britain, as well as internationally.
