LOTTO millionaire Gillian Bayford has shacked up with a convicted fraudster who once nicked £13,000 from Tesco.
But who is she, what has happened to her since her win, and what has she been spending her winnings on?
How much money did Gillian Bayford get?
Gillian Bayford, 46, won £148million on the EuroMillions with her husband Adrian in 2012.
Before scooping their millions Gillian worked as a health care assistant at the children’s ward at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
Gillian, originally from Kirkcaldy in Fife, separated from her husband just 15 months later and moved from Sussex to Dundee.
When their nine-year marriage broke down, pals said they split the money equally.
Who’s her new husband?
Gillian recently married convicted fraudster Brian Deans, 37, in a lavish ceremony in the five-star Fairmont Hotel near St Andrews.
The newlyweds tied the knot exactly six years after her Lotto windfall.
The whirlwind wedding happened less than a year after Gillian’s acrimonious split from “gold-digger” Gavin Innes.
She ended their short fling after hearing claims Gavin, 44, was only after her cash — and had said “derogatory” things behind her back.
Gillian said: “You have to meet a few weasels before you can meet someone nice — a prince or whatever.”
She then faced charges of assaulting Gavin after it was alleged she attacked him, but was later cleared of all charges.
Gillian was initially charged by police with a minor assault and released on an undertaking to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court.
That appearance was cancelled after police concluded there was “insufficient evidence” to proceed with a case against her, and she never turned up at court.
She got together with ex-schoolmate Gavin shortly after her split from fiancée Alan Warnock.
The EuroMillions winner, 45, refused to say whether she signed a pre-nuptial agreement with her swindler hubby Brian.
The 37-year-old was caged in 2012 — the same month the mum of two won £148million — after swiping the cash from a Dundee branch of the supermarket.
What has Gillian done with her share of the £148m?
Gillian bought a waterfront property in Newport-on-Tay from ex Adrian for £625,000 in 2017.
In 2016 she bought a new home for a four-year-old disabled boy and his “inspirational” mum to live in – as well as promising to foot the bill for any adaptations.
She was moved by Jenny McMillan’s inspiring fundraising efforts for son Blake and decided to help.
Jenny was reduced to tears when Gillian presented her with the keys to her new pad in Carnoustie, Angus.
Her son Blake suffers from a rare and devastating neurological disorder called MECP2 Duplication Syndrome.
What happened to Adrian?
Adrian has been just as unlucky-in-love as ex Gillian.
After their marriage broke down, Adrian met stable girl Sam in 2014.
After two weeks he flew her to a £500-a-night Maldives resort and proposed.
She walked out in January 2017 taking £300,000 of horses and a £60,000 sports car.
In June 2018 it was revealed he was dumped by his new lover Lisa Kemp after she found saucy emails he sent to an ex.
She stormed out over messages to sausage factory worker, Marta Jarosz.Gillian Bayford has married again, to fraudster Brian Deans, after winning £148million in the EuroMillions with former husband Adrian ]]>
