Melissa Ede, the transgender taxi driver who won £4 million from the National Lottery, has been rejected from buying her dream home. After winning the jackpot she fell in love with a five-bedroom property on a luxury development with its own duck pond, immediately setting out to buy the desirable pile.
Melissa, 57, says she had agreed to pay £440,000 for the pad, complete with furniture, and was looking forward to moving in with fiancee Rachel Nason, 37, and her five children within weeks.
But the dreams were shattered after neighbours in the new build estate in Nottingham, East Yorkshire, attempted to block the family from moving in.
