Guy finds girlfriend cheating, wins £65,000 hours after dumping her!

Getting cheated on is not ideal. There is not a lot you can do other than hope that they regret it immediately and their life spirals into complete and utter misery without you. Perhaps you would dream of drowning your sorrows in champagne and holidays? Would that help? Let’s ask this guy!

Joshua Black, 26, could not believe his luck after his ex-girlfriend cheated on him. Sounds strange, right? Here’s why.

Just hours after breaking it off with her, he won £65,000 on a footie bet!

The pair dated for over two years, but he discovered she had been unfaithful multiple times during her time away at university in Southampton.

He immediately broke it off and thought his life was doomed forever, until his luck came in with a ten pound bet! He can now try and get over his ex whilst living with friends in Marbella! He said he has met plenty of girls in his new life abroad..!

Joshua’s ex, Courtney Withers, 24, is now sincerely regretting her decision, saying that they had always dreamed of travelling, but never had the money to do so.

“The girls are all sending me messages asking if I was gutted that he won and that I should never have been unfaithful!”

But, she’s not bitter…

“Even though I was in the wrong, he called it off by text which I didn’t think was the right thing to do, but I wish him all the best even though I won’t see any of the money!” she said.

She added: “He could give me a million a year for the two years I went out with him – I wouldn’t say no to that.”

In your dreams, mate – good for you Joshua!
