The EuroMillions winning came for the couple eight years ago when the newlyweds were living in an £89,950 ex-council house in Stapleford, Nottinghamshire, announced they would spend some of the money on a 'dream home'.

Within seven months, the Topham family had bought a 1930s mansion in Adams Hill, Nottingham, for £1.2million - which they planned to demolish to make way for their new home, a £5million eight-bedroom eco-home named 'Serenity'.

However, their dream home with the ideal sound-proof cinema, a botanical garden, and a swimming pool, raised a few eyebrows from neighbors who accused them of having 'bad taste.'
