Watch as Stoke City fan Mitch, 21, wins £50k Mercedes and £30k cash {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

This was the moment a Stoke City fan saving up to buy a house found out he had won a £50,000 car and £30,000 in cash.

Mitch Ainsworth, aged 21, was enjoying a few days off before starting a new job when he received a video-call to tell him he was the proud new owner of a Mercedes A45S AMG plus thousands of pounds richer.

“Wow, I can’t believe it,” Mitch said completely speechless. “I just don’t know what to say.”

He said he’d always dreamt of driving a Mercedes.

“I’ve wanted to upgrade my Ford Fiesta for a while but never imagine I’d actually get a Mercedes,” he added. “It’s my ultimate dream car, I just can’t believe it’s mine.”

Mitch, from Stoke-on-Trent, was announced as BOTB's Midweek Car Competition winner.

He was even more surprised when the boot was opened to reveal a briefcase stuffed with £30,000.

“This is just the best day ever,” he added. “I just can’t believe this is happening!”

Mitch is hoping the money will give his finances the boost he needs to get on the property ladder with his girlfriend Chloe.

He added: "We’ve been saving for a house for a few months and this will definitely go towards that and then whatever’s left we will probably save for renovations on the house when we move in."

BOTB hands over the keys to two 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 was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999.

BOTB presenter Christian Williams, who surprises the winners each week, said: “What a great start to the week for Mitch - new job, new car and the cash. He’s played for a fantastic prize - the Mercedes is an amazing car. Huge congratulations again.”
