What a dickhead.

Though apparently it wasn't his fault. Why should an adult be expected to have any responsibility for how they spend their money?

Bring back debtors' prisons!

SKINT Lotto jackpot winner John McGuinness is to write a book on how he blew his £10million fortune.

John, 45, was declared bank-rupt and booted out of his £750,000 home last year after sinking £2million into debt.

The former hospital porter — who struck it rich in 1996 — had to sell off most of his prized possessions following a string of bad investments.

Now John, 45 has penned a bombshell account of how he lost the lot — and he points the finger at those he believes let him down with poor financial ad- vice. Last night, a source said: “John has a heartbreaking and incredible story to tell.

“He has had it all and lost it all.

“John has been very naive but a lot of people have taken advantage of him and he is ready to name names and tell his side of the story.â€

His downfall began when he put £4million into Livingston FC. He lost it all after the club went into administration.


The source added: “He is going to reveal how he spent his money on the cars, the homes and the holidays.â€

Last year, he had to leave the plush six-bedroom pad in Larkhall, Lanarkshire, he shared with wife Sandra, 40, and his three kids after failing to pay creditors.

It was snapped up in April for just £500,000 — — £250,000 less than he paid for it He now lives in nearby Carluke after he was thought to have got help from a businessman pal.
