Tipton man left speechless after turning 85p into £40k overnight in shock competition win {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A plasterer from Tipton was left speechless after scooping a £30,000 Ford and £10,000 in a competition he entered for just 85p. Andrew Tristram, aged 28, was at work in Willenhall when he was greeted by BOTB presenter Sean Hall who told him the news.
"Don’t mess about," Andrew laughed, dropping his tools in disbelief. I never thought I’d win, I only play BOTB because it’s fun, not because I thought I had a chance."
The 28-year-old, who lives with his wife Zoe and their almost one-year-old daughter, paid just 85 pence for the ticket in the online competition. "This has come at the perfect time," he added. "My car is ready for an upgrade so we were looking for a new one. I can’t believe it."
Andrew, who is a Liverpool fan, drives a Corsa at the moment but his new Ford Puma is an upgrade with an engine that has a turbo and 197bhp. He said the cash, which was placed in his new Ford's boot, will go towards doing the garden up ready for summer.

BOTB hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Other recent winners have bagged £20,000 in cash, a quad bike and holidays of a lifetime.
The company was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £47m worth of cars so far. BOTB’s Sean said: "Andrew seems like a great guy and it was fantastic to head to Tipton to surprise him this week. He played for an awesome prize and I’m super happy for him! Massive congratulations again!"
