Lowestoft at centre of Euromillions lottery drama

Larger-than-life stars from the world famous Big Ballet company show cased the heavyweight figure up for grabs in this Friday's EuroMillions draw as they pirouetted into Lowestoft today.

The Russian dancers, who all weigh a minimum of 15st, were at the town's Marina Theatre to make sure people in Suffolk and Norfolk do not miss out on a chance to become a multi-millionaire overnight.

Lottery history could be made if tomorrow's EuroMillions �117m jackpot is won by one UK winner.

EuroMillions has now rolled six times.

If one lucky ticket holder was to win the entire jackpot they would immediately dance their way to the top of the National Lottery rich list and become the joint 570th richest person in Britain.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: 'We hope the dancers will have spurred people on to try their luck at winning big this Friday.

'In the last couple of years Brits have won the EuroMillions jackpot 14 times including the anonymous �113m ticket-holder in October and we have got our fingers crossed that we will be writing our biggest cheque ever to a UK winner.'

The Big Ballet company is currently half way through its Size Does Matter UK tour.

It was established sixteen years ago by top Russian choreographer Panfilov to prove that people of larger build are able to move with similar grace, dignity and flare as traditional dancers.

The troupe's performances include a parody of popular classical ballets as well as dances to more fast-paced contemporary music including Tom Jones' Sex Bomb.
