There could be a secret millionaire living in Leicester.

The National Lottery's looking for the lucky winner of one of its Euro Millions raffles - which has a prize fund of £1,000,000.

Capital's been told the winner from the draw on Tuesday December 23, 2014, has still to check their ticket and claim their prize.

The search is now on to find the owner of it which was bought in Leicester.

The winning selection on Tuesday 23 December was CHB485448.

The ticket holder has until Sunday, June 21 to claim their prize.

If no-one comes forward with the winning ticket before the prize claim deadline, then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated, will go to help National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

A National Lottery spokesperson said: "We're desperate to find this mystery ticket-holder and unite them with their winnings - this amazing prize could really make a huge difference to somebody's life.

"Being able to guarantee two UK millionaires every week with UK Millionaire Maker is fantastic and we're urging everyone who bought a ticket in this area to check their old EuroMillions tickets again or look anywhere a missing ticket could be hiding, so that this prize can turn someone into the newest member of the lottery millionaire club.

"Try checking in the pockets of clothing, in wallets, bags and down the back of the sofa. We have the champagne on ice and our fingers crossed that the lucky winner comes forward to claim their win."

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket for any of the National Lottery draws within the 180-day deadline should call the National Lottery Line on 0845 910 0000.
