I won £10million on the lottery but now I work in a quarry after blowing it all… fresh tragedy has left me devastated | The Sun

A MAN who now works in a quarry despite scooping a whopping £10million on the lottery has been struck by fresh tragedy.

Michael Carroll, 40, became known as the "Lotto Lout" when he hit the jackpot as a 19-year-old – before splashing his cash on wild cocaine binges and prostitutes.

But the lucky man, who goes by the nickname Mickey, now lives in Scotland and works at a quarry as a yard foreman.

And while recently revealed he is happy and has "no regrets" in life, the death of his sister recently left him heartbroken.

Zoe Carroll, 43, is thought to have suffered a fatal cardiac arrest in recent weeks – with reports suggesting she had been on a "cocaine binge".

Mum-of-four Zoe had been given £1m by younger brother Mickey when he won the National Lottery.

MailOnline reported an inquest into her death said the mum had been found dead in her two-bedroom home on May 4 after a drug bender.

Mickey, who once bragged he's slept with 4,000 women, was a bin man before he scooped £9,736,131 on the lottery in November 2002.

But he was left penniless, homeless and declared himself bankrupt in 2013 after years of holding drug-fueled "Roman-style orgies" at his mansion in Swaffham, Norfolk, with naked women holding trays of cocaine.

He also blew cash on £100,000 gold chains, holidays and terrorised neighbours with his anti-social behaviour.

Mickey has served three prison sentences and appeared in court over 30 times for offences such as dangerous driving and affray.

However, he claims he is now a changed man and has not been arrested since 2010 and would not go back to his wild ways.

Mickey told The Sun: "Since I've been in Scotland I haven't been in trouble with the police. I've been a law-abiding citizen believe it or not.

"All the nonsense is in the past. I'm 40 now, not 19."

He also recently revealed he has no regrets about not saving any money for his children.

The dad said: "I don't regret or wish anything.

"If you live like that you're always thinking 'Why did I do that, why did I do this' and I don't want to live like that.

"No, I don't wish I put some money away for the kids.

"My kids will have to work for what they get.

"I worked all my life before I won and work hard now. Even when I was at school I used to bunk off and I'd be on the strawberry field with my mum and nan.

"Any one of my bosses will tell you how hard I graft."

Mickey added: "My kids aren't mad with me for spending the money.

"One of them joked with me and said, 'I know where you spent all the money – cocaine and hookers' and I couldn't believe it.
