Rummage down the back of your sofa, clear out your handbag, a mystery millionaire could beat the January blues and Christmas overspend with just one phonecall - but time is running out.

The EuroMillions winner has just 15 days to claim a £1m jackpot from July before Camelot donates the super-sum to its charity.

The ticket-holder, from Havering, was one of 100 people made rich overnight in Camelot’s special summer millionaire raffle.

A EuroMillions “butler” visited Romford last year to try and track down the winning ticket number CBS076276, drawn on Friday, July 26 – but to no avail.

The winner has until January 22 to claim the cash.

A National Lottery spokesman said: “We are desperate to find our missing millionaire from the borough.

“It’s exciting to know someone in Havering is walking round not knowing they’re a millionaire. We urge every player to check their tickets as there are life-changing prizes just waiting to be claimed.

“The clock is now ticking for the ticket-holder and we want to get the prize into their bank account so they can start enjoying their win as soon as possible.

“Missing tickets have turned up in some strange places so check in the bottom of your handbag, in every coat pocket, even have a rummage down the back of your sofa – the ticket could be lurking anywhere.”

The RM postcode was officially Britain’s luckiest, with about one in every 750 people having won £50,000 or more since the Lottery started.

Lottery draws help raise £35million for good causes each week.

Players have 180 days from the day of the draw to claim their prize.

Anyone who believes they have the winning ticket should call 0845 910 0000.

If no one comes forward before the deadline, the prize money and interest will be added to £30billion raised for good causes since the Lottery was launched 19 years ago.
