I scooped £90k in Postcode Lottery – the first thing I'm buying only costs £180 | The Sun

A WOMAN who won £90,000 in the Postcode Lottery may have become an overnight near-millionaire – but her first purchase only costs £180.

Jennifer was getting her hair cut in her best friend's kitchen when she found out she had won £90,000.

Jennifer, from Harlow in Essex, knew straight away what she wanted to splash her windfall on… A Ninja Air Fryer – to cook chicken and chips.

The mum-of-three explained: "There's two drawers, we can do both."

The kitchen accessory is currently on sale with Argos for £180.

Now ambulance emergency care assistant Jennifer can't wait to celebrate Christmas with her family.

She said: "I'm such a Mrs Christmas. My sister just flew home from
Dubai yesterday. She lives out there, so we'll get to see her and the kiddies."

Jennifer is currently awaiting an operation after breaking her ankle in February, but her win has put a smile on her face again as she plans her spending with water-softener engineer hubby Michael.

She said: "I kept saying to my husband, 'Let's just sit at the thousand and anything better than that is going to be amazing.' I've got to phone him and he's going to be like, 'What?!"

Some of her Jennifer's neighbours who all share the postcode CM18 6QT are now planning exotic holidays after the £90,00 windfall.
