The attacker struck outside of a sports bar after Jane, who was Britain's youngest EuroMillions jackpot winner at 17, and her 23-year-old brother William had watched last weekend's Champions League final.

The ‘Rambo-style’ blade punctured William's lung and damaged his spleen.

A friend of 25-year-old Jane, said: "Billy is so lucky to be alive."

She has stayed at his bedside in hospital following the attack near Oxford, where William lives.

The friend added: "Jane and her brother seemed to have a great evening watching Manchester City v Chelsea and then Billy was talking to some friends outside the bar after it closed.

"Jane wanted to get home so she walked on ahead. A couple of minutes later she heard some commotion.

"That's when it was clear he had been attacked. She ran back and quickly tried to help him but he was bleeding out on the pavement."

Police have said an 18-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of affray and causing grievous bodily harm with intent, and has been released on police bail.

Jane, from Edinburgh, scooped the £1 million EuroMillions jackpot in 2013 while she was working an £8-an-hour temp job and living in a council flat.

She spent the winnings on cars and a boob job, and recently revealed that she had her bum lift redone and liposuction in Turkey this year.

Jane spent the first part of this year in Dubai while the rest of the UK was in lockdown.
