"The most important thing is that he has spent time with his children and now puts himself in first place."

Since the rock music nut made £ 148 million available for the Euromillions in 2012, Adrian has become a landlord.

He has transformed the hectares of parkland around his heap of land and filled his stables with horses.

Encouraged by an ex, he even bought a rider's arena worth £ 1.5 million. Later he tried to impress another lover by buying their chickens.

The music-loving Adrian devoted himself to his passion by spending a fortune on memorabilia for his record shops.

He even hosted a local rock festival on the grounds of his villa.

The down-to-earth dad celebrated his impressive EURomillions win in 2012 with a take-away Dominos pizza.

15 months after winning the jackpot, he broke away from Gillian, the wife of the hospital cleaner, and started with the Polish sausage factory worker Mrta Jarosz.

Next, Adrian splashed Brazilian £ 100,000 Brazilian stallion fiancé Sam Burbrdge (31) and took her to the mansion before fleeing 300k nagging and a £ 60k car last year.

He made a lonely appearance when he flirted with senior barmaids at an Oktoberfest in October after being dumped by Frankie and Benny's waitress Lisa Kemp, 50.


She left the house earlier this year, claiming he had sent cheeky e-mails to his former Marta, 34.

By contrast, ex-Gillian has established a real estate empire around her home in Dundee, Scotland, where she is married to ex-scammer Brian Deans.
