A Brit has made a claim for a whopping £18.2million win on the EuroMillions.
The lucky person will bag a third of Tuesday’s £54.6million jackpot if their ticket is validated, Camelot said.
Two other tickets have already been claimed in France and Belgium, a statement added.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “We’re delighted this amazing prize has been claimed.
“Our focus now is on supporting the ticket-holder through the process and helping them start to enjoy their life-changing win.”
The claim will now go through the process of validation, which includes checks to ensure terms and conditions have been met.
Subject to validation the prize will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s winners’ advisers.

Camelot said: “Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will then decide whether or not to go public and share their news.
“There will be no information on whether they are an individual or syndicate winner, or where the ticket was purchased, unless the ticket-holder decides to go public.”
This is the fifth EuroMillions jackpot won in the UK this year.
Back in June one lucky ticket-holder, who chose to remain anonymous, scooped an amazing £111million jackpot prize in the draw on June 4 – entering at number nine on the National Lottery Rich List.
That followed an incredible win of £122.5million just two months before, in the draw on April 2, with the anonymous ticket-holder instantly becoming the fifth biggest National Lottery winner ever.
April proved to be a lucky month for UK EuroMillions players, as that win was followed by a £59million win from the draw on April 20.
Again, this lucky ticket-holder chose to remain anonymous.
At the start of the year – New Year’s Day – a single UK ticket-holder, who also chose to remain anonymous, banked £39million.
The country’s biggest ever National Lottery win was a £170million EuroMillions jackpot won by an anonymous ticket-holder on October 8 two years ago.
