Popular Postcode Lottery is giving couples prizes of £ 30,000
Former mason Gareth Bull, 50, won £ 41million in 2012 in the Pan-European Lottery. In 2016, he met Donna Desporte, now 52, in Tenerife on a boys’ vacation while still married to his wife Catherine.
She ran a bar on the Spanish island and later revealed that Mr Bull was using “Google me” as his pickup line.
Following the decision, 36 passages from “Google Me, No Lies,” Ms. Desporte’s relationship book, must be deleted.
He was also forbidden to publish four photographs “taken privately” by Mr. Bull, in the book.
Ms Desporte had argued that she had the right to speak out publicly, in response to claims that she was a “gold digger”.

However, her argument was rejected in the High Court by Judge Julian Knowles, who concluded that there was no public interest in their sexual relationship.
Judge Knowles called Ms. Desporte’s behavior “totally unacceptable”.
He added: “Donna Desporte has consistently filed completely baseless claims in a number of actions over an extended period of time.
“They have been certified completely unfounded by experienced judges at all levels, from Masters to Court of Appeal.

“These totally unfounded demands have occupied a great deal of judicial time and resources, as well as Gareth Bull’s resources, for several years.”
According to The Sun, Ms Bull spotted her husband on TV with Ms Desporte in 2017, during a boxing match with Anthony Joshua.
The couple, who have two sons, separated later that year.
Ms Desporte said Mr Bull said he was separated when he first approached her.

He said: “This has all happened at breakneck speed since Saturday and it’s hard to keep pace.
“We have the house of our dreams that we built from the ground up and it’s impossible to think about what we’re going to do next. “
