A former postman who won a £148million jackpot prize set his sights on a woman in a relationship and stole her with a string of steamy texts.
Adrian Bayford, who won his massive EuroMillions prize back in 2012, divorced wife Gillian one year later and divided their winnings before going their separate ways.
The 52-year-old set his sights on ambulance worker Tracey Biles – despite her being in a relationship with old friend Mark Newman.

Bus driver Newman, 56, claimed the pair were in love and “happily settled” after instantly hitting it off when they met in 2018.
But Bayford began courting Biles, sending her a string of steamy texts, and the pair have officially been together since September of last year.
Newman claimed his and Biles' relationship hit the rocks after Bayford, who looks very similar to Newman, visited their home.
The dad of four claims during the visit that Biles was “so flirty” and kept referring to Bayford as “darling”.
He went on to accuse the now couple of sharing a string of steamy messages before she ditched him and moved into Bayford’s £12million mansion in Cambridgeshire.
In an interview with The Sun, Newman claimed his life changed the day Biles stepped out of the car at the mansion.

He claimed: “She changed as a person. I felt like such a lemon.
“I became aware they were messaging — she told me he was chasing her because he had always fancied her. Adrian was sending steamy messages about how he wanted to bed her.
“She just said he was a friend helping her out — but it was clearly so much more than that. She told me, ‘I’m staying here. I’m not coming back’.”

Biles and Bayford were recently pictured visiting the supermarket together, looking like a regular happy couple.
Speaking to The Sun about the pictures, Newman said: “Of course, Adrian looks happy as he’s finally got what he wanted.
“It just goes to show what money can buy. He’s smiling like the cat who’s got the cream.

“They’re probably still shopping in Tesco despite having all that money as clearly, neither of them has much taste, so to speak.
“I’m still really angry as clearly, they don’t understand what they’ve done to me. I’m sure Karma will come back to bite them.
“But they’re not a thought in my head anymore. There’s more to life and more important things to focus on like my children and my work.”
