Daniel White broke up with girlfriend Courtney Davies months before she won £61m EuroMillions jackpot

Daniel White, an unlucky rugby player, learned “it might be you” when he was abandoned by a girlfriend who later turned out to be a huge lottery winner.

The Welshman was one of the Britons who experienced double heartbreak when someone’s numbers were called.

Similar to Kirk Stevens, who lost out on a portion of a £3.6 million prize when his relationship with Laura Hoyle ended, Dan was unable to inherit any of his ex-wealth girlfriend’s in 2016.

To make matters worse, her sister and her boyfriend, who received a £12 million share of the prize, were neighbours of his at the time.

Other couples have split up after winning large sums of money or having conflicts with Camelot, the company that runs the National Lottery.

Here, we examine the romantic bets that failed.

When Courtney Davies broke up with Daniel White after enrolling in college, they had been dating for two years.

At Wales’ Monmouth Comprehensive School, the couple had been dating, but they eventually drifted apart and made other pals.

“It was a school and teenage romance that just fizzled out,” said Daniel, 27.

“We had various friends and diverse interests.”

But losing Courtney proved to be expensive when her sister Stephanie afterwards purchased a fortunate dip ticket from her neighbourhood garage valued at £61 million.

The close relatives consented to divide the earnings, including awarding Stephanie’s boyfriend a £12 million amount.

Daniel was then neighbours with Courtney’s fortunate sister.

The first I knew of their victory was my phone going crazy, he stated at the time, “All my friends are savaging me.

“The males kept jokingly snapchatting me and giving me links, asking whether I was upset. How often have you sobbed since learning the news, mate? one person asked.

“I just put my head in my hands. I’m happy for them – but obviously I feel like it could have been me.”

In 2005, Sarah Cockings was a penniless college student when the lottery made her a triple millionaire.

After her significant victory, the now-40-year-old Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear resident got engaged to lover Roy Kelley.

But a year later, the couple decided to call it quits without sharing their vows.

I believe we both got caught up in the excitement surrounding the lottery win, and now that things have calmed down and life has returned to normal, we have realised that we are just no longer in love with one another.

She had fortunately provided Roy with the down payment for his own home.

The 25-year relationship between Glasgow hairstylist Barry Chuwen and his spouse Jenny ended when he met another lady, he disclosed in July.

Barry, 52, received a £4.5 million fortune in 1999 and gave his staff the salon as a gift.

Since then, he has launched a variety of businesses, some of which have had difficulty.

“I built a relationship with someone I met at work,” Barry stated.

I’ve apologised to Jenny and our kids, and I want to treat them with love when they get older.

Barry, 54, and Jenny are selling their five-bedroom detached home in Whitecraigs, East Renfrewshire, for £1.75 million. They have three children.

If the “Lotto curse” is genuine, then £161 million jackpot winner Colin Weir suffered greatly.

He was happily married his wife Christine before to winning that significant sum on the EuroMillions in 2011.

However, eight years after establishing a charitable trust, the generous couple revealed their 38-year marriage was ending.

Sadly, Colin passed away at the age of 72 from sepsis and kidney failure three months later.
