Lucky win­ners with a com­bined for­tune of more than £110 mil­lion have posed for a Van­ity Fairstyle photo shoot to mark the Na­tional Lottery’s 25th an­niver­sary.

The 25 in­di­vid­u­als from each year of the lottery’s ex­is­tence are some of the big­gest win­ners from more than 5,500 mil­lion­aires cre­ated since the first draw on Novem­ber 19 1994.

The line-up in­cludes 84-year-old Brian Caswell, from Bolton, who won £24.9m in 2009 and Bev Mid­dle­ton, 40, from

Brad­ford, who re­ceived £14.5m in 2017.

Since the first draw 25 years ago, the Na­tional Lottery said it has paid out more than £71 bil­lion in prizes and raised £40m to sup­port thou­sands of projects and char­i­ties across the UK.

The win­ners, aged be­tween 26 and 84, were pho­tographed by Sven Arn­stein.
