A supermarket worker who won a £5.6m (€6.6m) British National Lottery jackpot said yesterday that she would continue shopping at Asda with her 10pc staff discount card.

Checkout supervisor Sue Stebbings (43), of Lowestoft, Suffolk, said she planned to spend some of her windfall on holidays, cars and a boat -- but would not change her weekly shopping habit.

Ms Stebbings, who earns £12,000 (€14,162) a year, said she would take a 12-month career break from her job with Asda.

She said she had already spent £1,206.30 (€1,423) on a pre-Christmas break in Tenerife and £6.30 on a new Asda shirt and tie for husband Richard (46).

The couple also plan to pay off the mortgage on their three-bedroom detached house and secure the futures of their children, Vicky (20) and Charlie (17).

"I will continue to do my shopping at Asda. I can still use my 10pc staff discount card and I will. Old habits die hard."

She added: "We'll be having a normal family Christmas. Maybe with a few more presents."
