A new survey reveals what people who win the lottery spend their cash on.

There have been 3,000 people in the UK who have become lottery millionaires since it launched in 1994.

Making a cup of tea, going on holiday and getting a jacuzzi are just some of the things winners listed as things they did after winning.
