Who wants to be a millionaire?

Well, this Roche gardener for starters.

For the first time we are hearing the moment Lee Orchard is told he has hit the jackpot on a scratchcard.

After checking the numbers himself he calls the National Lottery for confirmation.

The operator gets his manager to check - and breaks the good news to the dad of two.

Lee said: "I just kept looking at it, probably like ten times. I just couldn't believe my eyes and I went straight back into the shop to get them to check it, and the lady said I've got to contact Camelot.

"So then I was thinking, 'it's got to be something.'"

After getting confirmation Lee's next call was to his wife - who took some convincing it wasn't a wind up.

You can hear the conversation that changed their life below...
