A former healthcare worker who won £148 million on EuroMillions last year has left her husband and taken up with the Audi dealer who supplied her with a fleet of luxury cars.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford received their massive EuroMillions payout in August, 2012. It was one of the biggest wins in Britain and the couple swore the money would not change them, but last month Mrs. Bayford announced their separation. Mr. Bayford confirmed this in a separate statement, saying, "Gillian and I have split. When you win the lottery it’s so stressful."
When the possibility of another man was suggested, Mr. Bayford dismissed the idea, saying, "There’s never been anything like that at all." But his wife has already moved out of their £6 million mansion, and bought a house on the outskirts of Dundee, where she was spotted Christmas shopping with car salesman, Alan Warnock. The two met just after the big win, when Mr. Warnock sold her three Q7 SUVs and two Q5s. He has now given up his job at the John Clark Audi dealership in Dundee, and moved in with Mrs. Bayford.
Standing outside of her new home, with Mr. Warnock at her side, Mrs. Bayford explained to the Mail on Sunday, "I have moved home." Her husband declined to comment on the matter, but a close friend of Mr. Warnock stated, "Alan and Gillian are an item and are serious about each other. He sold her the cars she wanted after the big win and romance has blossomed since then."
