Youngest EuroMillions winner Jane Park’s biggest regret after £1m win aged 17

The youngest EuroMillions winner has spilled the beans on her biggest regret after scooping the £1million windfall.

Jane Park secured the huge win when she was just 17 years old, changing her life in an instance as she went from working a temporary admin job where she earned £8 an hour to a millionaire.

She launched a huge spending spree, but says her biggest regret is splashing out for a bum lift that went horribly wrong with the winnings.

The Scottish lottery winner told LADbible: "The only purchase I regret is my first Brazilian Bum Lift.

"I was left in absolute agony and hospitalised for four weeks with suspected sepsis."

And the surgery isn't the only thing Park wished she had done differently.

Although the win skyrocketed her to social media stardom, the now 25-year-old wishes she had never gone public after she scooped up the million pounds.

"I do regret going public," she added.

"Yes it was my choice, but I was just 17 and it happened so quickly," she said.

"I found out on Monday, was persuaded to do publicity without thinking of the negative impacts it would have and within 48 hours I had a photographer and publicity team in front of me.

"I feel like there should be at least a 14-day period for winners to truly decide what they want to do, rather than make a decision whilst you’re still coming to terms with the fact you’ve become a millionaire.

"I didn’t want to have a public profile, as such, but I have given interviews publicly to raise awareness.

"A lot of people think that the solution to my problems is simply to give all the money away to charity, but at some point I would like to have a family and how could I knowingly give it all away when it could help my children with their education and start in life later in the future?"

Jane, who boasts an Instagram account with more than 200,000 followers and a successful OnlyFans page that rakes in several thousand each month, has publicly campaigned for laws around the lottery to be changed

.

Jane is delighted that the minimum age to enter the lottery has been raised from 16 to 18, but the admin temp-turned-influencer now wants even more action to be taken.

"I’m really proud that by speaking publicly about wanting the age limit increased, the lottery was finally increased to 18 after 28 years of it being just 16," she said.

"Now I would like to see a ban on publicity for anyone under the age of 21."

The lottery is no stranger to this kind of criticism, even being labelled a "curse" by some.

Top economists have even said that securing the win can land people in more financial trouble rather than clearing their debts.

Financial consultant Don McNay even warned that suffering from suicide, depression and divorce "is the curse of the lottery because it made [winners'] lives worse instead of improving them."
