Miss Park, who won £1 million in 2013 aged 17 had been in a romantic relationship with Webley until the pair split recently. Miss Park, now 28, became Britain's youngest winner of the EuroMillions cash and later starred in a documentary about her winnings.

When she won, Jane had been living in a two-bed council house in Edinburgh and earned £8 per hour working in an office doing admin for a charity organisation.

Posting a picture of them together on her Instagram Stories on Monday, she revealed they had spoken on Sunday as she paid tribute to Webley.

She said: “I can't believe I'm writing this. We spoke yesterday. If I could cuddle you again and tell you everything is going to be OK I would give anything to do it, Marc.

"The months we spent together, you taught me some valuable things in life and I'll never ever forget you. I am absolutely devastated. The best bed for you is up there My Handsome.”

Webley's brother Don posted a picture of him on Facebook and friends replied with their condolences including Miss Park, who posted a heart emoji.

Another friend said: 'Sorry for your family's loss mate, RIP Mark.'
