Lotto lout Michael Carroll reveals surprising new job after blowing £10million

Lotto lout Michael Carroll has landed himself a £10-an-hour job after blowing his £10million fortune.

The 35-year-old now starts work at 6am every day chopping wood and lifting bags of coal for a fuel merchant’s firm.

Carroll – later dubbed the ‘King of Chavs’ – was just 19 when he won a life-changing £9.7million in 2002.

But in under a decade he spent the winnings on a lavish lifestyle of new homes, drugs, parties, jewellery and cars.

He even built a banger racing track in the three acres of land surrounding his six-bedroom house in Norfolk.

But in 2010 he applied for his old job back as a binman and later earned £11 an hour in a biscuit factory.

Now he is enjoying a more simple life at the fuel yard in Moray, Scotland.

He told The Sun: "My £10million vanished in just 10 years and I don’t have a home or a car to call my own. But I’m not bitter.Easy come, easy go.”

Carroll regularly works 12-hour shifts and credits the new job with with helping his weight drop from 22st to 17st.

The position involves lifting eight-stone bags of coal, leaving him covered in soot, and chopping logs to burn in furnaces.

The Lotto winner revealed how "going broke is the best thing that happened to me" and said he’s "never been happier" since returning to work.

Carroll was wearing an electronic tag for being drunk and disorderly when he won the jackpot.

He still plays the lottery but says he’d continue working if he won again, "to keep myself out of trouble".
