“My new husband asked if it would have been worth being married to him for £32million. No. I don’t envy him and don’t expect anything from him.”
The ex-wife of the retired teacher who won Britain’s second biggest lottery jackpot said yesterday she wouldn’t take him back even for his newfound £32million fortune.
Jenny Brown’s ex Gerry Canning was this week revealed as the mystery winner of the huge Lotto jackpot .
The 61-year-old said: “My new husband asked if it would have been worth being married to him for £32million. No. I don’t envy him and don’t expect anything from him.”
Jenny and Gerry, who have two children, were married for 25 years but split 17 years ago.
She said: “We didn’t lead an affluent lifestyle. When you’re married to a teacher, you don’t.”
Management consultant Jenny, who lives with husband Peter in a flat in St Albans, Herts, said she had no regrets or hard feelings.
She added: “We are happy. I wouldn’t change it for £32million. Gerry will deal with it sensibly.”
Jenny said she is thrilled her and Gerry’s sons Andrew, 31, and Thomas, 34, and their children will benefit.
She added: “I’m about to retire so I’m not going to be able to help them as much as I have in the past.”
Jenny said she and Gerry are still friends, adding: “He’s a nice person.”
