Lee Ryan £6.5m 1995
LOTTO bad-boy Lee Ryan is hiding out in a shabby flat in remote Kyrgyzstan after blowing his fortune and becoming crippled by debt.
The 42-year-old former convict, who once lived the high life with a £2million mansion, flash cars and a helicopter, now has few possessions –except an arsenal of GUNS.
Lee left the UK in 2007 owing over £80,000 on credit cards and without paying his phone bill.
He has 88 previous convictions and has been jailed on several occasions.
He was sentenced to 18 months for a carringing scam committed before hitting the jackpot 10 years ago.
His cleaner was locked up for two years in 2001 after admitting milking £40,000 from his account over a year with a string of bent cheques.
Ryan split from wife Karen, mother of three of his children, several years ago and set up home with 27-year-old student Jika.
They met on the internet. She comes from Kyrgyzstan and they have a daughter, Tallulah.
Ryan sold the barn in Leicestershire where they lived and moved to a three-bedroom flat in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan.
His eldest daughter Nadeyne, 22, travelled out to spend Easter with them.
She posed in front of his four-wheel drive brandishing one of his guns, while he posed with another. LOTTO lout Michael Carroll tried to commit SUICIDE after losing his huge fortune and seeing his life spiral out of control.
Carroll, 28, attempted to hang himself in August and was only saved when a friend discovered him.
He self-harmed again weeks later at his home in Downham Market, Norfolk.
Carroll, an alcoholic, who is now on benefits after blowing his winnings on drugs and high living, was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in nearby King’s Lynn.
But the former dustman, who now weighs nearly 20-stone, refused to let doctors treat his injuries and he discharged himself.
Carroll, who has a string of criminal convictions, was wearing an electronic tag when he scooped his massive £9.7m winnings in 2002.
He frittered away almost his entire fortune on wild parties, cocaine, prostitutes, luxury cars, chunky gold jewellery and hand-outs to relatives and hangers-on.
Carroll made the lives of neighbours a misery by buying a three-acre field to stage demolition derbies in old banger cars behind his former home in Swaffham, Norfolk.
The field was left littered with the remains of dozens of his crashed and burned-out cars.
The self-styled King of Chavs was finally forced to sell his dream home for a £600,000 loss last August after wrecking it and moved to Downham Market.
