Lottery millionaire Melissa Ede and her partner Rachel Nason celebrated their birthdays by swapping gifts, but they weren't exactly the kind of gifts you would expect lottery jackpot winners to buy.
Melissa, who worked as a taxi driver before winning the lottery, celebrated her 58th birthday on Tuesday with her partner. Melissa won a £4 million jackpot from a £4 scratchcard in 2017.
Some of the weird gifts that the two bought for one another include a plastic slug, a Ouija board, sets of false teeth, Worry dolls, a Pokemon t-shirt, giant waterslide, a pentagram ring, a pack of drill bits and the world's smallest jigsaw puzzle.
Melissa told the BBC earlier this month that she had invested £3 million of her winnings, while also paying off her home and buying her partner a brand new BMW.
