A man ‘is in dreamland’ after scooping a brand-new BMW M2, plus a huge cash prize.

Willis Jones, 27, was left speechless after being told over a video call that he had won a £50,000 BMW, plus £30,000 in cash.

The 27-year-old entered an online competition run by BOTB (Best of the Best) and was left almost in tears as BOTB presenter Christian Williams told him he was this week’s Midweek Car Competition winner.

Willis, an engineer from Formby, was having a relaxing afternoon off work, when he got the call that he’d bagged himself the incredible prize.

And he clearly wasn't expecting company as he was in his girlfriend's dressing gown for the call.

He said: “I can’t believe it. I’ve been playing for a year or so and I always imagined how I’d react if Christian rang me - I can’t believe it’s happened while I’m in my girlfriend’s dressing gown.”

The engineer said he’d always dreamt of driving a BMW, adding: “I just love BMWs. My mate has got a four-series and I love it but the M2 is just out of this world. I can’t believe it’s mine.”

The BMW M2 Competition can reach a top speed of 155mph and has a 404bhp. In video, Willis beamed with excitement, adding: “I drive a Ford Focus at the moment so this is definitely an upgrade.”

The surprise didn’t stop there as BOTB presenter Christian opened the boot of the BMW to reveal a briefcase stuffed with £30,000 in cash.

Becoming emotional, Willis said: “Oh wow. I can’t begin to describe what this means to me. It’s literally a dream come true.”

Willis said the money would go towards a house with his girlfriend, Gina as they have been looking to purchase a home together.

He added: “We’ve been saving for such a long time and recently started looking at houses - this is going to make a huge difference. Thank you so much BOTB.”

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.

The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £37m-worth of cars so far.

Christian, who surprises the BOTB winners each week, said: “Willis played for a stunning car and I’m super happy for him. It did make me laugh that we caught him in his girlfriend’s dressing gown though! Massive congratulations again.”
