The moment a Cumnock man scooped a brand-new luxury hot tub worth almost £7,000 in an online competition has been captured on camera.

Alan Mills, 33, was at home when BOTB presenter Christian Williams video-called him to reveal he was this week’s Luxury Lifestyle Competition winner and had bagged a luxury five-seater hot tub which comes with more than 80 hydro jets, premium LED lighting and a waterfall system.  

The father-of-two gushed: "This is amazing news. It’s been a tough few months for us. I’ve got a condition called Spondylitis which means I’ve had to be extra careful during the pandemic. I’ve been self-isolating for most parts of the past year."

Alan explained that during his time at home he’s created a ‘man cave’ with a pool table, darts board and now luxury five-seater hot tub for when restrictions ease and he can see his friends and family again. 

Alan, who lives with his wife, Lauren, and their two children, paid just 35p for his ticket to enter the competition.

He continued: "I usually play for the cars on BOTB but the Luxury Lifestyle Competition has some wicked prizes so I’ve started playing that too.

“The question was which character doesn’t appear in the Harry Potter films and I have never watched a single Harry Potter film in my life. Luckily though the character that I did recognise was from Lord of the Rings so I knew the answer.

"I’ve wanted a hot tub for so long, this will be the perfect addition to the garden. This is definitely something to look forward to, thank you so much BOTB!”

BOTB, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £37million worth of cars so far. 

BOTB’s Christian, who surprises winners every week, said: “Alan sounds like a lovely guy who’s had a tough year but his man cave sounds like an awesome lockdown project. The hot tub will fit perfectly and I’m super excited for him. Massive congratulations again, Alan!”
