He told the Liverpool Echo:

"It's fair to say I was otherwise engaged getting married, so didn't check my phone for the results until later when I saw a lovely sum of money in my account.
"I always put this kind of bet on and I've picked up bits and bobs in the past. I'm sure we'll put it to good use. As for a honeymoon, we've booked a nice hotel in Chester.
"I'm the luckiest man alive - and not just because of my bride."
