Emmerdale star's London grandad wins dream car and £30k cash after buying £1.20 ticket {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A grandfather was left speechless after winning a dream car plus £30,000 cash in a competition which cost just £1.20 to enter.

Brian Seifert, 76, from St Johns Wood in North-West London won the prize after entering through the online competitions company BOTB.

The lucky man won a brand new Honda e Advance worth £32,000, as well as £30,000 cash.

Brian explained he was at home waiting for a grocery delivery when BOTB presenter Christian Williams video-called to tell him the good news.

“It’s just unbelievable,” the retired designer laughed.

“I’ve never won anything before. I’m made up.”

Brian said the money would go towards a holiday to the Caribbean with his wife Sandra once restrictions were lifted and the rest would be split between his family.

He said: “I have a daughter, Victoria, and son, Charles, who I’m sure will get a slice of the money to share with my five grandchildren.

“I’ve got five grandchildren - Mimi, 18, Will, 20, Lucy, 14, Ed, 12 and Olivia, 20. I’m so proud of them all, they are the best thing in my life."

His granddaughter Mimi is none other than Mimi Slinger, who plays Leanna in Emmerdale.

 “I can’t believe it,” he added. “I spoke to my local car garage yesterday to ask them to find me an electric car and the next day Christian called me - it’s crazy!

“I played for the Honda e Advance in particular because it’s just so different and unique. You don’t see many of them on the roads!”

BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to Las Vegas and a gaming tech bundle.
