LOTTO rapist Ior­worth Hoare faces be­ing booted out of his new £1.75m rented home – af­ter us­ing a false name to get it.

Hoare, 60, se­cretly moved into the coun­try pile in July af­ter death threats had forced him out of his old house.

But he may now have to move again – af­ter the hor­ri­fied mil­lion­aire who owns the man­sion dis­cov­ered he had been duped over his new ten­ant’s iden­tity.

He then caused out­rage when he won his jack­pot af­ter buy­ing his ticket while on day re­lease from prison.

He had been jailed for 33 years af­ter be­ing found guilty of rape, three at­tempted rapes and in­de­cent as­saults.

When his heinous crimes were ex­posed the Na­tional Lottery faced calls to bar con­victed crim­i­nals from claim­ing pay­outs with then Tory leader Michael Howard call­ing for a ban.

One of his vic­tims sued him for dam­ages and was awarded com­pen­sa­tion in an out of court set­tle­ment.

She gave the money to char­ity.
