Adele King, aka panto dame Twink, has confirmed that she is not one of the winners of the €12.8m Lotto jackpot.

The winning ticket was sold in Adele's local Supervalu in Knocklyon.

This week there was speculation that Adele could have bought the winning ticket.

However, speaking to Independent.ie, Adele said she’s "not the lucky type."

"I have to work for anything I get."

However, Adele understands how she became embroiled in the €12.8 m Lotto goose chase.

"I was having a laugh with a neighbour who was doing the midweek lotto. For the craic I did one box and a plus! I mentioned the next day that I had a win – wrong move!"

Adele had indeed selected a winning combination but it was for a Lotto Match 3 draw.

Her total winnings came to €10.

"I won a tenner," she said. "Close but no cigar eh?"

The following day Adele had to deal with journalists waiting outside her house.

They informed her she had landed millions.

"The WHAT?" Twink said.

"The whole of Knocklyon wants to believe it’s me – HA!," she said.

"Bless my beautiful neighbours. I informed them that we would all be on a yacht together in the Seychelles by now if it was me."
