A premium bond owner in Fife has one million reasons to celebrate this month - and they all have the Queen’s head on them.

The winner, whose identity remains a mystery, was one of two winners across the UK to win a £1million jackpot in this month’s draw.

According to records, the woman won with a £5000 holding which was purchased in December 2008.

Her total holdings amount to £29,998.

A spokesman from NS&I said: “I can confirm that one of the million pound Premium Bonds prize winners is from Fife.”

To protect the winners’ identity NS&I only list an area when there are at least 100,000 premium bonds holders living there.

The odds of winning any tax-free prize in the monthly draw are 30,000 to 1 and range from £25 to £1 million.
