“It’s a dream come true,” the Easy Win Competition winner said. “It gives us the freedom to go where we want, when we want.

“We had a caravan before and went to places like Yarmouth - the grandkids loved it. We sold it and were going to replace it, but then Covid hit.”

The 67-year-old added: “I’ve played the competition before on and off and to actually have won feels amazing.”

Christian said: “This motorhome is unbelievable and has everything Andy needs in there to spend days and days away from home.

“I think he was about to paint the chicken shed when I surprised him. I’m pleased to have helped him get out of that.”
