Amy was just on her way home from the hospital, after treatment on her bad bad, when she heard the January Jackpot song play.

She has four children - Finley, Oscar, Arlo and Rivi. - and they normally play along with her in the car so she was gutted they weren’t with her at the time to hear Matt tell her the news.

Winning £20,000 has come at an ideal time for Amy, as she’d been having an extension built but run out of money! The house has been like a building site for a while so she'll be able to use the winnings to finish off the build. With it costing £2,000 to get it finished, she'll have £18,000 leftover to spend!

A holiday has to be on the list of things to spend that on, but Amy is already predicting they won’t be able to decide where they want to go though so she's thinking of taking four holidays to keep everybody happy.

Phillippa works as a carpenter and was heading home from work when she heard the January Jackpot song play, she's an avid player so her persistence has paid off.

She’s living in rented accommodation at the moment and really wants a place of her own, so a deposit is on the list of spending plans for her prize money.

She loves playing darts with her sister and is going to celebrate with a game tonight! She also needs to get the car through its MOT - with £20,000 she can buy a new one!

After finding out how much she’d won, Phillippa decided to give herself the afternoon off and crack open a couple of beers!

Catriona's works really hard as a theatre nurse, she’s 23 and still living with her mum but she’s been saving for two years to get a place of her own!

Her heart’s set on a flat in the West End of Glasgow and she was speechless when Jamie and Amanda told her she'd won on Heart's 2020 January Jackpot. The £20,000 will sort out a deposit, as well as decorating the flat and decking it out with furniture.

To celebrate her win, Catriona's going to take her mum on holiday to Spain as a thank you for looking after her, and she'll be the first person Catriona calls to tell the good news!

Yasmin was in a busy office and waiting to clock off at 5pm when she heard the January Jackpot song. She only started playing today after her work colleague Chloe told her she should give it a go. Ironically, Chloe didn’t play the round that Yasmin won, so she’s going to take her out for a bit of a treat to make up for that! 

She has been saving up for the last few years to move out so winning the £20,000 means she can now realistically move out this year, which she is very excited about.

Like all of us, Yasmin has been struggling for money this month, so she can’t wait to go clothes shopping and take her mum and friends out for dinner. First on the list of celebrations, she’s going to celebrate tonight with her family, a takeaway and a bottle of prosecco! Cheers to your win Yasmin!

Heather works as a drama therapist for the NHS. She’s not had a great week either as she's lost her voice, the clutch went on her car and she fell over after being chased by a dog she thought was a werewolf! Winning £20,000 couldn't have come at a better time and she couldn’t wait to call her husband and text her kids to tell them the good news.

On her plans of what to spend the winnings on, Heather told Jamie and Amanda about her family in Australia who she’s not seen for 6 years. Taking her three children down under is an expensive holiday so the money will definitely help make a family reunion possible.

Joking about her run in earlier in the week, Heather also reckoned Idris Elba would be her ideal bodyguard to protect her from the local neighbourhood werewolves!

Joshua also has his eye on the latest gaming tech, so Elise is delighted she can now surprise him with the gear he wants.

Elise has also got plans for a holiday in the next few months and wants to go back to Greece as she’s not been for 10 years.

Mark has two kids who are non-stop pestering him for the new Playstation and the latest trainers.. so how he’ll be able to sort them out with some of the £20,000 that'll soon be in his bank account!

He does plan to spend some of his winning on himself too, as he’s always wanted to take his family on a once in a lifetime holiday to Walt Disney World in Florida and that dream can now become a reality.
