“I was just about to deliver some food when I entered the competition, and I was praying I would win,” he said.

“When the email came through saying I had won, I had to close it and open it again because I couldn't believe it.

“My father won a new car a few years ago in a different competition, and the fact that I have won one as well is incredible. My brother has also played the BOTB competition and if he wins that would be unreal.”

Despite the Range Rover Evoque P300e Dynamic being renowned for its cutting-edge technology, luxurious interior and off-road ability, Adrian said he was considering taking the cash alternative to help out his family.

“I want to help my brother who has some things to take care of, help my parents, and then I will take care of myself as family comes first,” he added.

Will said: “The fact that Adrian’s father has also previously won a new car shows that luck clearly runs in the family.

“It’s an amazing car, and I’m sure Adrian will have a lot of fun driving it if he chooses it over the cash alternative.

“But if he does choose the cash and uses some to help his brother, that would surely make him the best brother ever.”

Leading car competitions company BOTB hands over the keys to a stunning dream car each week as well as a lifestyle prize.
