Britain’s youngest lottery winner Callie Rogers is penniless and living on benefits

Britain’s youngest lottery winner is penniless and living on benefits 18 years after she won £1.8 million at the age of 16.

Callie Rogers, 33, was recently given a driving ban after crashing her 4×4 while high on cocaine when it emerged she had blown her winnings, The Sun reported.

The mother-of-four had to be pepper sprayed when police detained her after she veered off a country lane while being chased by police in Cumbria.

It was revealed in court that she was claiming Universal Credit despite her 2003 win of £1.8 million as the judge handed her a 22-month driving ban.

She won the jackpot when she was just a teenager earning £3.60 an hour as a checkout girl. 

But Rogers lavished herself with three breast enhancement surgeries, drug-fuelled parties and £300,000 worth of designer clothes.

She also gave around half a million pounds to friends and family – and was brutally assaulted two years ago after gaining notoriety in her local area. 

Last December, she was out driving with her new boyfriend Jason Fearon, 31, when Rogers ploughed through a hedgerow near the town of Crosby.

A police officer got out of his car to check on Rogers’ Hyundai Tucson at around 1.20am, but the prosecutor told the court how the couple tried to flee.

Pam Fee told Workington Magistrates’ Court: ‘[Fearon] has then been led to the police van in which he stated, “I told her not to drive”, referring to the female he had been with.’

Rogers meanwhile tried to get out of her handcuffs and had to be subdued by PAVA, a compound found in chilli peppers which is similar to pepper spray.

She later tested positive for cocaine use but refused to take a breathalyser. 

Ms Fee told the court: ‘She both said that she was, and that she wasn’t the driver repeatedly to police officers. Throughout, her behaviour seemed to be up and down.’ 

Rogers’ laywer Mike Woolaghan told the court there was no evidence his client was driving.

He said: ‘I think she had been angry and annoyed at the way that she’d been treated.’ 

Rogers, of Flimby, admitted failing to provide a specimen as she appeared at court on Wednesday.

As well as an almost two-year ban, she was ordered to wear an electronic tag for 11 weeks with a nighttime curfew at her home. 

Fearon admitted resisting an officer and was handed a £200 fine and ordered to pay £100 compensation. 

Rogers has previously told how her lottery win sent her on a downward trajectory and has called for more protections for young winners. 

At the time of her jackpot, she was living with foster parents in Cockermouth, Cumbria and working at the Co-op. 

Within weeks she met Nicky Lawson, father of her eldest two children, and moved into a £180,000 bungalow. 

But five years later, her relationship fell apart, leading to Rogers attempting suicide.

At a particular low point, her children were taken away from her, and she splashed £17,000 on a boob job to help with her confidence.

She had previously claimed to have spent £250,000 on cocaine, but has since denied this.  

Rogers also says she was targeted by people who pretended to be her friends only to siphon her money away.

In 2018, she revealed how she thought she was going to die after being assaulted by two women on a night out.

She was knocked unconscious, had her teeth smashed, ribs broken and suffered permanent damage to her sight. Marie Hinde, 38, and Jade Quayle, 27, were later jailed. 

Rogers told Closer magazine in 2013: ‘I got up late and lived on takeaways. And so-called mates would come over until the early hours to party.

‘Suddenly, I was a local celeb and people would come up to me in pubs as if they were my best friend and I felt pressure to buy them all drinks. I didn’t know who to trust.’ 

She added: ‘It was too much money for someone so young. Even if you say your life won’t change, it does – and often not for the better. It nearly broke me, but thankfully, I’m now stronger.

‘I try to forget the ups and downs I’ve been through and just feel like a normal person. The pressure to splash out and live a glam party life has gone – and I prefer it.’
