A lottery winner passed out at work after discovering she'd scooped a £570k prize overnight.

The unnamed Aussie woman said she turned "white as a ghost" when she found out that she had won the $1million (£570k) Lotto prize.

After failed attempts to call the woman, from Wondonga near the border between NSW and Victoria, Australia, the Lotto sent her emails urging her to check the website.

"Once I came to my senses that I'd won division one, I yelled out, 'Are you kidding me?! S*** yeah!'." she said.
