You might naturally assume that a millionaire EuroMillions winner won’t need much help. After all, when you have it all, there is not much to worry about. You would be wrong, however. Camelot and other EuroMillions partners have a well-established “school” for winners called EuroMillions Millionaire Academy. Jane Wyatt, a £1m winner from Manchester whose last minute purchase led to the win, is a recent “graduate” of the academy. Speaking to local media, Jane Wyatt revealed some of the subjects covered at the academy.
