EuroMillions winner returned to lorry job at Lidl after keeping huge win secret

A UK Lottery millionaire has finally revealed his identity – and he hid it from his Lidl colleagues for months.

Steve Schiltz, 56, won the £1 million jackpot in November 2019. Shortly after he won, Britain was in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

And despite having already retired, the father-of-six took up the Government's call to arms, and found himself back behind the wheel of Lidl's HGVs driving across Wales and the West Country to help keep the supply chain moving during the crisis.

He told The Mirror: “I used to be a lorry driver before winning the lottery and I had a letter asking me to go back.

“Lots of people with an HGV licence had the same letter from the Government but not many of them were lottery millionaires.

“It made me a key worker and I didn’t think twice – I was happy to help out and it was brilliant to be back in work.

“It meant that instead of money coming out of the bank account we had money coming in!

“We have been very lucky, it’s a wonderful feeling not to have any money worries any more.”

The Swansea-native said that he was inspired to get back to work by his wife, who continued working as a freelance health and social care trainer after the couple's EuroMillions raffle win.

Despite returning to work, the pair did celebrate their win in style – with a fancy trip to the Maldives, and upgraded their car from an old Fiat Multipla to a new Range Rover Discovery.

They haven't yet jacked in their old house, and have put some of their money aside to make sure their six children and four grandchildren have some financial security when their older.

The couple are also hoping to win again, as they are still doing the lottery every week – although if they do win, they'll be donating their winnings to “good causes”.
