LOTTERY mega winner Adrian Bayford shows off his trimmer new look — and a trendy beard.
Ade, 49, who won £148million with wife Gillian, has shed pounds after buying a new home in the Scottish Highlands with a gym, tennis court and a climbing suite.
The couple have divorced but the £1.2million converted farm in Perthshire, which has two lochs, is just a short drive from Gillian.
They split over the “stress”’ of their huge 2012 win — and dad-of-two Adrian has had a string of failed relationships since.
A friend said: “Adrian has obviously turned a huge corner. He looks the best he has for years.
“After so much bad luck in his love life he knew he needed to change and he wanted it to be dramatic.
“Moving to the highlands and going all ‘hipster’ is about as dramatic as you can get — but it’s obviously working for him.
“He picked the new house so it would give him the lifestyle he wanted, as well as being near Gillian and the children.
The world’s five biggest lottery wins
- £1.308 billion (Powerball) on January 13 2016 in the US, for which three winning tickets were sold, remains history’s biggest lottery prize
- £1.267 billion (Mega Million) a winner from South Carolina took their time to come forward to claim their prize in March 2019 not long before the April deadline
- £633.76 million (Powerball draw) from a winner from Wisconsin
- £625.76 million (Powerball) Mavis L. Wanczyk of Chicopee, Massachusetts claimed the jackpot in August 2017
- £575.53 million (Powerball) A lucky pair of winners scooped the jackpot in Iowa and New York in October 2018
“I’m sure Gillian and the family are happy to see him looking so great.”
Adrian, who was notorious for eating seven Cornish pasties a day, snapped up the Scandinavian-style home after initially setting his sights on Dundee, where Gillian lives with the kids and her new husband.
But his new home is within an hour of his family — instead of a nine-hour drive from his previous home in Suffolk.
