An actor who is set to star in a play about a man missing out on a 100-1 bet has had a real-life stroke of luck after finding a EuroMillions ticket worth more than £55,000.
Dion Davies, 47, from Ceredigion, found the ticket tucked inside a sun visor while his car was being cleaned, six weeks after the draw.
The father-of-one, who has appeared in the BBC’s Torchwood and Sky comedy Stella, said he found the ticket only because his black Nissan was so untidy it needed a professional valet to clean it.
He said: “I needed to clean the car both inside and out. It was in a terrible state after lots of journeys, so I took it for a professional valet.
“The guy asked me to take all of my belongings out before he started just in case he threw away something that was valuable! I’m glad he did.”
Mr Davies had matched all five numbers and one Lucky Star from a EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 20 December to win £55,086.
