Britain's youngest lottery winner who scooped the £1.8million prize aged 16 has said the age limit for players must be raised to 18.

Callie Rogers, from Workington, Cumbria, squandered the life-changing sum by buying lavish gifts for her family and friends and on a boob job.

The mother-of-three's life of luxury has evaporated along with the cash, but she insists she's 'happier than ever' earning just £12,000 a year, reports the Mirror.

Now the carer has called for the lottery gambling age to be raised as she did not know how to cope with the whopping prize.

She told the Mirror: 'Overnight I went from carefree child to adult. All these years on, it still gets dragged up. Even when I go for job interviews, I am thinking about it.
