Lucky Co Antrim man wins new motorbike after entering competition for less than £1 {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A Co Antrim motorhead was left speechless after scooping a motorbike in BOTB's online competition during lockdown.

Michael Aiken, 36, thought it was any other day during the Coronavirus pandemic when he received a video call from BOTB presenter Christian Williams.

Unable to hide his excitement, Michael shouts to his children: "I've just won a motorbike!"
"That's amazing. That looks awesome, I can't wait," he told Christian.

Explaining how he came to enter the competition, the Carrickfergus man added: "When I saw that the bike had come out, Moto Guzzi didn't release it that long ago, and I saw the colour scheme.

"I logged on to BOTB.com and seen it, I thought I had to get a couple of tickets for that.

"This will be my first Moto Guzzi and I cannot wait."

Christian, who surprises BOTB winners all over the country each week, said: "You entered into our BOTB Lifestyle Competition last week.

"I added you as a contact on my phone and I saw that your WhatsApp picture was a motorbike, so you must be quite a big fan of bikes.

"£10,000 that bike is worth and it's all yours and what a bike it is."

Michael, who paid just 55p for his ticket to enter the competition, added: "I've never had a brand bike before either. This is amazing. I can't believe it."

Since being founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away over £34m worth of prizes, including supercars, cash and holidays.
