Transgender taxi driver who won £4million Lottery Scratchcard reveals dramatic makeover ‘that could rival Kardashian clan’

A transgender taxi driver who scooped £4million on a Lottery Scratchcard has undergone a dramatic makeover for a magazine photo shoot.

Melissa Ede, 56, said no one recognised her when they saw her with her new look while she was out shopping.

Melissa, from Hull, revealed the makeover as she shared a picture of her transformation on Facebook with her followers.

She said: “It’s mixed reactions between how lovely I look and others are like, ‘you can’t do that, it’s not the Melissa Ede we know’.”

Her new wig has caught people off guard, she said, adding: “They supplied it to me yesterday at the photo shoot for Closer magazine.

But she was quick to point out that her brunette do is not permanent because it is a wig, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Melissa, who has four adult children, was given the makeover as she posed for Closer magazine following her life-changing win.

She joked that her makeover is so stylish that it could give the Kardashian clan a run for their money.

“It’s for an article Closer is doing on me and they decided to give me a before and after makeover and that is how my hair and face ended up afterwards.”

Melissa, who admits she enjoys the media attention, said she is not sure if the new look is for her after nobody recognised her when she went out shopping.

Man, 20, reacted to winning $450 MILLION Mega Millions prize in calmest way and this is how he plans to spend it

A 20-year-old man reacted to winning $451 million in the Mega Millions jackpot in a calm way and revealed how he plans to spend his money.

Young Shane Missler has become the fourth largest lottery winner in US history and he has opted for a one-off payment of nearly $282m (£205m) instead of taking the full prize (£330m) in installments.

His brother was the first person Shane called after receiving the news. He later told his father the following morning over a coffee.

Mr Missler, who worked as a verification specialist at a background screening firm, said: “I’m only 20, but I hope to use it to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity.”

He told the Tampa Bay Times he was going to “take care” of his family but then planned to leave the area.

After realising he had five winning numbers and the “mega ball” on the January 5th draw he updated his Facebook status to “Oh.My. God.”

 

 

The lucky winner told lottery organisers he believed in the power of a positive mindset and that he was not surprised he had won. He said he had “a feeling” that he might.

He plans to spend his big win to help his family and ‘do good for humanity’.

“If there is one thing I have learned thus far in my short time on this earth it is that those who maintain a positive mindset and stay true to themselves get rewarded,” he said.
