‘It sounds really boring – people may have noticed, we’re getting a little bit past our late thirties now so we need to be sensible!’ Mitch said.

‘So we’re going to pay off our mortgage just to make life easier. We’ve got a mortgage we can’t jump over, and that will change everything.’

They added that they had also purchased a 1970s house in Newport, Sydney, which they had intended to renovate and sell so they could downsize their own home.

But with their new found winnings, they said they could be in a position to keep the property.
