A construction worker from east London has won a £3 million dream home.

Kevin Johnson, 34, claimed the latest Omaze million pound house draw after buying the winning entry for just £50.

Kevin said that when he was told he had won the Islington home he was “so shocked” that his “knees almost gave way”.

As well as winning the four-bedroom Victorian townhouse mortgage-free, Kevin will be given £100,000 in cash to help him settle in.

Kevin began working in the London building trade ten years ago and his wife Dee, 44, has worked in childcare and education for the past 24 years.

The lucky couple have been married for 12 years, living in a rented three-bedroom flat since 2011. They share four sons together.

A stunned Kevin was told he had won the house, described as being just a short walk from Finsbury Park station, after he arrived home from work.

He said: “My wife was on her way home from work so I video called her straight away - she didn’t believe me at first, but when she saw the camera crew the penny finally dropped.

“She screamed and turned her phone around to tell the packed train that we’d just won the Omaze house – all the other commuters started clapping – it was crazy.

“We’ve always wanted to own our own house one day, so this really is a dream come true for us - we’ll be moving in as soon as we can.

“I won’t need to use any of my carpentry skills on the house as it's absolutely perfect - the kids are going to love it.

“We’re still pinching ourselves, whatever we decide to do long term, this is going to give us so much security as a family, it's truly life changing for all of us.”

The prize draw raised £2 million for the British Heart Foundation – the biggest single raise by Omaze to date.

Kevin added: “My wife’s grandma had heart complications in later life, so we’re really pleased that the draw raised so much money for the British Heart Foundation.”

Dr Charmaine Griffiths, chief executive at British Heart Foundation, said: "We’re delighted for the Johnson family and are absolutely blown away by the £2 million raised by the Omaze London House Draw.

“This incredible amount of money will help fund ground-breaking research, which will transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK for generations to come.”
