A £58MILLION lottery winner treated seven of his tradesmen pals to a dream week in Dubai.
Joiner Ryan Hoyle, 38, had previously only travelled to Magaluf and Benidorm on two-star stag parties.
But he and his mates enjoyed first-class flights, five-star penthouse suites and £1,700 bottles of bubbly on tap over the New Year.
Ryan had won £58,366,487 on EuroMillion last April but Covid prevented a proper celebration.
His mates then faced job uncertainty along with the rest of the nation during 2020.
Ryan, of Rochdale, said: “Covid’s made things tough for everyone so it was great to be able to get away and have a party.
“I’ve known all the lads for around 20 years and wanted to treat them to a trip they’d never forget.”
Ryan splashed out around £20,000 on two top-floor penthouses with a private terrace at the Five Jumeirah Village Hotel.
The pampered pals also partied at the Zero Gravity beach bar and club, where pop star Justin Bieber recently hosted a bash.
They downed £1,700 six-litre bottles of Laurent Perrier champagne and £1,700 six-litre bottles of Ciroc vodka, with a gaggle of beauties clamouring to join them.
Peter Garry, who has known Ryan for 20 years, said “He’s the best friend anyone could have. There’s never been anything flash about him and the win hasn’t changed him a bit – he’s still the same great guy.
“The only thing we ever disagree about is football because he supports Manchester United and i love Burnley.
“We never in our wildest dreams expected him to be so generous and have all had literally the best week of our lives.
“I’m used to lager and burgers at stag dos with the lads in Spain but there was absolutely no expense spared in Dubai.
“We were drinking from huge magnums of champagne at the classiest beach club in town and I got a real taste for this posh Ciroc vodka.
“We stayed in our own penthouse on the top floor of one of the best hotels in Dubai and never had to pay for a thing.
“There were quite a few funny moments – but nothing I’d want to talk about!”
Single Ryan has an 11-year-old daughter and plans to treat her to a trip to Disneyland in Florida once Covid restrictions ease.
The gang flew out in economy with Emirates because there were no other seats available.
But they were treated to a first-class return costing £6,000 each.
Peter said: “I could have spent the entire week on the plane. I had a full-size bed, my own cabin with a giant plasma screen and amazing service.
“When we flew to Spain I’d get something grim in a tray – but on the way back from Dubai I dined on venison.
“It was the perfect end to the perfect week.
