We’ve won £1m on the Lottery ...but I won’t be fixing my teeth!
Couple’s scratchcard joy
A MAN whose wife won £1million on a scratchcard has insisted he will not fix his wonky teeth.
Plasterer Matt Fairfull, 62, has a front gnasher that pokes out of his mouth to create his trademark smile.
Asked if he would get dental work after wife Marilyn’s jackpot, she stepped in and said: “He probably will.”
But Matt immediately corrected her by saying: “No, I won’t, because it would not be me. I am what I am.
“I am happy with the way they are. I am the governor, no matter what.”
Marilyn, 64, bought her Monopoly Classic scratchcard for £5 last Sunday.
Describing the moment she realised she had won, the factory worker said: “I felt physically sick. I just didn’t believe it. It really is magic. This time last week I was wondering what we’d be having for dinner. Now I’m wondering what to do with a million quid.”
Matt was on his mobile when he got home from work and heard the news – and calmly told his caller: “I’m very sorry, I have to go. My wife has just become a millionaire.”
The couple, who have four sons and five grandkids, plan to decorate their home in Stowmarket, Suffolk.
They will also have their first holiday in 10 years, to Jamaica, and get new furniture and a giant TV to watch the World Cup in comfort.
And self-employed Matt does not want to give up his job, saying: “We are going to keep being normal people.”
