Paul Greenwood, from Halifax, was left speechless after scooping a brand-new Suzuki Jimny SZ5 Auto in BOTB's spot the ball online car competition just four years after winning a Jaguar F-Type in the same way.

The 48-year-old was in the middle of a couples yoga session when BOTB presenter Christian Williams turned up at his door to tell him he’d won this week’s prize.

Having gone through the surprise already in 2016, Paul knew exactly what was happening when Christian knocked on the door.

He said to the presenter: "Oh my gosh! Shall I put my shoes on?”

“I always hoped I’d see you again.”

BOTB has given away over £34m worth of prizes since 1999, including supercars, cash and holidays.

Paul added: “I just can’t believe it.

"It’s brilliant. I’m completely overwhelmed.”

Paul and his wife Katherine also won £10,000 in cash - left in the boot of the car by BOTB.

Paul said he was going to take his wife to the Maldives for her 40th birthday with the winnings.

He added: “The rest will be split between my two daughters.

"Lauren, 26, is saving for a house and Ella, 20, wants to train to be a makeup artist. This will really help both of them!”

The couple said they headed straight to the pub to celebrate.
