Shockingly, she claims someone her age shouldn’t have been allowed to win.

Whilst speaking to Loose Women, Jane said: “I never realised how difficult it would be. I thought everything would be amazing.

“But, at times, it’s completely different to how you’d expect”.

But, viewers were quick to blast the winner, despite Jane confessing she was no longer planning to sue Camelot.

One said: “Won a million and now complaining and wanting to sue camelot. Grow up. #LooseWomen”.

Another said: “No sympathy for the £1 million Lottery winner on @loosewomen who says it made her life a misery Give it away to charity then! #LooseWomen”.

During the interview, Jane added: “At times it feels like winning the lottery has ruined my life.

“I thought it would make it ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse”.

This week, Jane has pleaded not guilty in her home city of Edinburgh to a charge of drink driving.

When asked about her Euromillions win, she said: “I wish I had no money most days. I say to myself, ‘My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won’.

“People look at me and think, ‘I wish I had her lifestyle, I wish I had her money’ but they don’t realise the extent of my stress”.

She continued: “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?

“I think 18 should be the minimum age for winning the ­lottery, at the least. The current age of 16 is far too young”.

Jane, who worked as an admin temp before her win, said she never really understood what difference the money would make to her life.

After the winning the massive sum of money, Jane said she splashed the cash on holidays, handbags and cars, but didn’t know how to manage her money in the slightest.

She said: “I’ve read about other lottery ­winners who’ve just blown it all and I can totally see how it can be done”.

Although Jane wan the age for playing lottery to be raised, Camelot have said the minimum age limit to play the lottery is a matter for Parliament to rule on.
