Lotto winner who won £8m ‘picked up cop girlfriend who stopped him speeding’

A lottery winner who bagged £8million has boasted who he picked up his cop girlfriend when she pulled him over for speeding.

Former lag Kursat Yildirim, the man who found fame when he netted a £8.7million lottery jackpot win last year, has spoken of a chief inspector he appeared smitten with.

Yildirim, 42, who is known to his fans by his nickname Chico, has since recalled the chance encounter with a red-haired police officer who he showed off in a series of social media snaps.

Chico and his girlfriend, known as Candice N, 36, had been dating secretly for months after the lottery winner was pulled over.

She said: "Mr Yildirim thought he was coming down the street a little too quickly and didn't see that I was standing at the intersection."

But when issued a ticket, Chico tried his luck and offered Candice out on a date, which she accepted because he was "persistent".

Former crane driver Kursat said: "I fell in love with Candice right away, the red hair, the freckles, her amazing body – I can't get enough of her.

"She has a big heart, radiates so much humanity. She is self-confident and has both feet firmly on the ground. I can rely on them 100 percent."

It appears Candice is equally as in love with the lottery winner, and says she did not take him "for his money" as she has been "financially independent for a long time".

She continued: "To show me how important I am to him, he gave me a Louis Vuitton handbag. It brought me to tears. I love spending time with him. But I don't want to give up my independence."

She will continue her job as a state police officer as she dates Chico, who once spent time behind bars for fraud and robbery.

Following his release and subsequent lotto win, Chicho went on a wild spending spree and splashed out £1.3million in just a month on a V8 Ferrari 448 Pista and Porsche Turbo S Cabriolet, and a mansion to store them.
