The EuroMillions' biggest ever jackpot is up for grabs and could help one lucky Brit buy an island in Florida Keys.

If a single ticket holder wins the huge sum of £184 million in Tuesday's lottery, it will make them the UK's biggest Lottery winner.

They would storm to the top of the UK's Lottery rich list, eclipsing the anonymous winner of a huge £172 million jackpot in 2019.

The lucky ticket holder would count themselves richer than Adele, who is worth £130 million according to the latest Sunday Times Rich list.

They would be richer than Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, worth £125 million, but would still be lagging a bit behind his fellow hitmaker Ed Sheeran, who is worth a reported £220 million.

With a cool £184 million, the UK winner could buy any property in the country, in any street.

According to real estate website Zoopla, a winner could buy one house in each of the UK's top 10 most expensive streets. They would be left with £35 million to pay for furnishings.

If the newly-crowned multimillionaire does not want to limit their property ambitions to the UK, their fortune would allow them to buy their very own private island in the stunning Florida Keys, on the southern tip of the US state of Florida.

The sprawling 26-acre island also features a tennis court, helipad and a 20-slip marina able to accommodate a mega-yacht.

It saw them jump onto the Sunday Times Rich list just above Beatle Sir Ringo Starr and crooner Sir Tom Jones.

The pair, who had been married for 30 years at the time and had two kids, spent their money on a mansion – before later upgrading to a bigger one – and a fleet of cars.

They also made several £1 million donations to the Scottish National Party over the years.

Colin was also praised when he paid to refurbish Largs Thistle FC's football ground and donated £1 million to Partick Thistle FC to clear up debts and help pay for a youth academy.
