Lucky Irene Wins Her Dream Car- But Can't Drive It! {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

It was a week of celebration for Morley pensioner Irene Dellar who whisked her husband away to Guernsey for his 70th birthday and then returned to discover she’d won her dream car. But as she was handed the keys to a £40,000 Range Rover Evoque, complete with £10,000 in cash stuffed in the glovebox Irene Dellar admitted she couldn’t d rive! That won’t stop her from being driven through Morley by her husband Robin though. “I just want to wave at everyone like the Queen,” she said. Irene, 66, had bought the tickets while at Manchester Airport from the Best of the Beststand in departures. “I just thought it was worth a go,” she said. “I’ve played a couple of times before and just felt dead lucky this time. We thought nothing more of it and left for our short trip to Guernsey. “It was where Robin and I first met more than 40 years ago and we wanted to go back before we’d be both pushing zimmer frames. “A few days later we were back at the airport picking up our bags. As we walked through the arrival gates we were surprised by the guys from Best of the Best standing with all the taxi drivers with my name on a board. They took us out to the VIP area where there was this amazing car and they said it was ours. Well, you could have picked me up off the floor!” Best of the Best gives away a dream car every two weeks and since launching in 2000 has handed over the keys to more than £14 million pounds-worth of dream motors. Irene said she was waiting for someone to tell her it was all a joke. “I couldn’t believe it. In fact, I still can’t believe it. I went round telling all the passengers to buy tickets because if I can win something like this then everyone’s in with a chance.”
