Lottery winner who won £148million DUMPS her husband after he squandered millions on cars, holidays, watches


A lottery winner has dumped her fraudster husband after he squandered millions of her £148million fortune on cars, holidays, watches and five-star football trips – as friends say he saw her as nothing more than ‘a cash machine’. 

Gillian Bayford is said to have thrown convicted fraudster Brian Deans, 43, out of her Scottish home after rowing over his spending sprees. 

But friends say the 51-year-old had already ‘wasted a small fortune’ on jobless Deans, who quickly became used to her money.

She Lavished Him Enough to Keep Her Family

They say he would move out after rows with her – only to return as she treated him with lavish gifts, such as new cars.

And it is claimed she would do anything to keep her family together – after the pair became parents to a little girl during the 2020 Covid lockdown

‘Brian saw Gillian as a cash machine, nothing more,’ an insider told The Sun.

‘If they had kept going the way they were they could have ended up skint.’

Why Deans Was Jailed

Deans was jailed for defrauding a Tesco out of £13,500 in 2012 – the same week that Gillian and her ex-husband Adrian won their £148million windfall. 

He and a friend, who had mad thousands putting fake customer refunds through the store, were both jailed for six months. When he came out he worked renovating properties.

His Tragic Story

The former conman is now running a pub in Auchterarder after being thought to have already spent everything he had from Gillian, in what the source called a ‘tragic story’.

How He Squandered Some Wealth

Gillian and Deans had moved to the Perthshire farm from Broughty Ferry, outside Dundee, in an attempt to make a fresh start, which fell flat.

He was said to have been living in a rundown Dundee flat at the time that they met, but later moved into her mansion.

She’s now with new husband

And soon, sources say, he became used to the money and would spend her cash flying friends out to football matches and showing off that he was the one paying.

She would give him a monthly allowance, but it is claimed ‘besotted’ Gillian would have to fork out more and more cash to cover his lavish tastes.
