Watch - Couple scoop £174k Audi and cash bonanza after wedding cancelled in lockdown {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

A Birmingham couple whose wedding was cancelled THREE times because of coronavirus have finally been given a reason to smile.

Steve and Bonnie-Lee Brooks were devastated when their big day repeatedly had to be ditched due to the national lockdown.

But the couple – who finally managed to tie the knot on holiday - were left with tears of joy after bagging a £104,000 Audi RSQ8 and £70,000 in cash in a spot-the-ball contest.

Steve was working from home when BOTB presenter Christian Williams ambushed him in Solihull to reveal he was this week’s dream car competition winner.

The Audi - which has a 4.0 litre, twin-turbo V8 engine and produces 592bhp - was waiting for him down the road. You can watch the reveal above.

"This is literally a dream come true," the 46-year-old said. "I’ve been playing BOTB for years and I always hoped one day I’d meet Christian!

"We’ve had an awful year with disappointment after disappointment with the wedding but last month we managed to get away to Cyprus for a week and finally tie the knot.

"This is just the cherry on top and a fantastic end to the summer - thank you so much BOTB!"

Steve drives a Mercedes-Benz E-Class at the moment but said he’d always had a thing for Audis.

"It’s an absolutely fantastic car," he added. "I love the Audis anyway but this one is fantastic - the look, the engine, everything really."

But the surprise wasn’t finished there for the newlywed as Steve found a briefcase stuffed with £70,000 in cash waiting for him.

"Oh wow. This is honestly just crazy," he said shaking.

"I think a big honeymoon is on the cards and we’ve got so much we want to do around the house too! I can’t say thank you enough."

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

The company, listed on the stock market, hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a ‘lifestyle’ prize. Recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to the Arctic and £15,000 in cash.

BOTB’s Christian, who surprises winners every week, was thrilled to give Steve the good news.

"It sounds like Steve and Bonnie-Lee have had a really tough few months so I’m even more thrilled for them. They’ve won an absolutely fantastic prize - the Audi RSQ8 is an incredible car but thanks to our BOTB promotion last week, they’re also taking home £70,000 in cash! Massive congratulations again!"
