"A lottery-winning couple who blew all of their prize money in the space of a year say they are now facing eviction from their home for a second time after being refused benefits.

Jobless Jamie and Abbie Hort won £50,000 in the Christmas 2014 Channel Islands Lottery but the Guernsey couple claim that after living on the winnings throughout 2015 there is nothing left.

They splashed the cash on designer clothes, holidays, new furniture and a giant TV for their flat.

When the winnings ran out last month the Horts were unable to pay their rent, so put in a request for income support and housing benefit. But this was refused and the couple were evicted from their £890-a-month flat."


I wonder your views, Ladies and Gentlemen!
