If nobody comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money and all the interest it has generated, will go to the lottery’s good causes.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: “We’re desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings – this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody’s life. We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding.

“Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa – someone out there could literally be sitting on a fortune!

“We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win.”

To jog Lotto players’ memories, Bruno Mars topped the UK singles charts, Coventry FC were playing QPR, and Matilda was playing at the Stratford Courtyard Theatre on the day the numbers were chosen.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
