Peggie hasn’t given any thought yet as to what she will do with the winnings from the show but you can sure she will look after her kids and grandchildren.

Peggie only discovered she was selected after she returned home from her aunt Ellie’s 85th birthday dinner last Saturday evening.

Peggie wasn’t long in bed that evening when her bedroom door burst open and her daughters excitedly told her about her good fortune. Peggie was so elated that she got straight up out of bed and re-joined her family in the hotel where the birthday dinner was held and they celebrated until the early hours!
