A man has pleaded guilty to attempting to murder his partner who won £5.5million on the National Lottery.
Stephen Gibbs, 45, initially denied attempting to kill Emma Brown, 49, at their £700,000 detached cottage on January 30.
Ms Brown, who quit her job after winning the huge sum around four years ago, was allegedly stabbed in the face by the defendant, at their home in, Barry, South Wales.
The couple have reportedly been together for 11 years and previously owned a home in another part of Barry which they rented out after Ms Brown scooped her win.
Appearing at Cardiff Crown Court on Monday, Gibbs was due to stand trial for attempted murder but he changed his plea to guilty.
Gibbs was remanded in custody to appear for sentencing at Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court on October 8.
