Dundee FC footballer Jordan Piggott is dating Britain’s youngest Euromillions winner.
Jordan, 18, who moved to Dens Park in the summer from English side West Brom, has gone public on his relationship with Edinburgh woman Jane Park, who was 17 when she scooped £1 million with her first ever ticket.
He posted on Facebook that they have been an item since last month.
The defender played the first half of Dundee’s 5-3 win over St Johnstone in Dave Mackay’s testimonial last week and he was back in action last night, starting in the 2-0 defeat by Celtic at Cappielow Park.

She said: “I thought it would make it 10 times better but it’s made it 10 times worse. I wish I had no money most days.”
Before winning the lottery, Jane worked as an admin temp for £8 an hour and lived in a small flat with her mum in Edinburgh.
“I thought it would make it 10 times better but it’s made it 10 times worse. I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, ‘My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won’.
“People look at me and think, ‘I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money.’ But they don’t realise the extent of my stress.
“I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?
“I think 18 should be the minimum age for winning the lottery, at the least. The current age of 16 is far too young.
“I’ve read about other lottery winners who’ve just blown it all and I can totally see how it can be done.
“I was stuck in front of a financial adviser who was using words like investment bonds. I had no clue what they meant.”
“It’s scary how different my life is from my friends’. When they say they’re stressed about the money they mean their wages are s***,” she said.
“There’s no one in the same boat as me, no one who really understands. I feel like I’m a 40-year-old.”
