A man who scooped £1.3m on the Lottery has returned to work - flipping burgers at his local McDonald's.

Lottery winner Luke PittardLuke Pittard, 25, walked out on his £5.85 an hour job 18 months ago after becoming a millionaire.

But money can't always buy you happiness.

The man dubbed the "McMillionaire" has discovered he misses his pals at the Cardiff branch of the restaurant too much to give up work.

"I loved my work at McDonald's before I won the money, and I'm really enjoying being back there again," he said.

"There are so many familiar faces that it was like coming back to a group of old friends."

Luke, who enjoyed an expensive wedding with his girlfriend Emma in November, said a life of luxury was not for him.
"To be honest, there's only so much relaxing you can do. I'm only young and a bit of hard work never did anyone any harm," he said.
"Lots of my old McDonald's workmates came to our wedding and I had kept in touch with them all the time, so I just thought 'why not go back?'."
Luke will be working 15 hours a week, earning £87.75.
Wife Emma said: "We both really enjoyed working at McDonald's and still have good friends there, so it was really familiar for him and something for him to look forward to."

I think I have to agree with you on this one :)

Good for him for staying close to his friends and marrying his gf.

Not so sure what he is doing back at McDonald's. If he really want to work hard, there are lots of other things he could be doing with that cash.

wasn't this in the papers a couple of weeks ago?

I think if your someone who's worked all there life then it would be very difficult to suddenly stop working. Personally after a few weeks off I actually want to go back to work whether that be for the routine that I'm used to or the social aspects of having people from outside your close family to interact with.

For those reasons I can see where this guy is coming from.

lol... if i won that much cash i would not be working there... :) invest some, start your own business if you want to work doing something you enjoy then after a hard days work.. back to the mansion in my db7 to watch the footy on my new 60 inch plasma tv in the games room :)

Good on him!

Well done him - it's a shame that so many other people without money don't have the same work ethic.

good on him

Good for him. £1.3m these days isn't the fortune it would have been even 10 years ago - once you've bought your home, given some away to close friends & family, you've made a good dent in it already, & if you're not working, it would be very easy to spend money unnecessarily out of sheer boredom. At least he knows what it's like to have good friends & a strong work ethic - a lot of rich people have neither, & are very lonely whatever trappings of wealth they have.

I've a feeling he won't be one of those lottery winners that become millionaires, then wail poverty a few years later because they've "had" to buy a Rolex & several cars, they have a fridge of champagne to maintain & they can't cope unless they've had at least 5 holidays a year. He's got a good head on his shoulders. :)
