A multi-million-pound lottery winner has remarried his ex-wife who left him over a decade ago for splashing his cash on alcohol and drugs and cheating on her with prostitutes.
Mickey Carroll, 38, won £9.7 million in 2002 when he was only 19 years old and had just become engaged to Sandra Aiken when he won the fortune.
The couple divorced in 2008 after Sandra accused him of cheating on her and spending his newfound wealth on drugs and booze, the Daily Record reports.
She said in 2009: “Mickey thought he was a big shot, better than everyone because he had money, and he surrounded himself with hangers-on.
“I left because he was frittering away £10million on drink and drug binges and was cheating on me with prostitutes.”
But that was all forgotten about when Mickey announced to Facebook pals that he’d married Sandra – who has added Carroll to her name – in a small ceremony last Saturday.
A friend said: “Mickey’s calmed down a lot and has been living quite a nice wee life and working hard. Him and Sandra buried the hatchet and got back together and it has all worked out well for them.
“It happened very quickly in the last few months, but they fell right back in love and are really happy together now. What’s in the past has been forgotten about.”
Mickey ended up penniless and homeless after his hedonistic partying days on the beaches of Jamaica, Barbados and Marbella.
He was frequently pictured sporting Rangers branded jewellery and sportswear, and was labelled as “Rangers-Daft Lotto Lout” and “King of Chavs” for racking up anti-social behaviour convictions and jail time.
But he now seems to be living the quiet life in Belfast after remarrying Sandra.
Mickey was only a teenager and working as a binman in Norfolk when he spent his last pound on his first-ever lottery ticket.
He’d said: “It didn’t go wrong – it was the best 10 years of my life for £1. I don’t look back with any regrets, that’s for sure.
“I reckon I’m lucky to be alive. If I still had the money, I’d probably be 6ft under.”
In 2019 it was revealed how he had a job delivering coal and logs in Moray for £400-a-week after moving to Scotland for a fresh start.
He rented a flat in Elgin where he worked a number of jobs including in a slaughterhouse and biscuit factory.
