A Lotto millionaire has gone back to work washing sheets in a hospital laundry, just weeks after scooping £1.1m.
Ms Gilbert said she still played the Lotto
Grandmother Joanne Gilbert, 47, was off on sick leave when she won the jackpot seven weeks ago, but said she could not wait to return once fit again.
Ms Gilbert, from Abertillery, said she wanted to keep her feet on the ground with her £6-an-hour part-time job.
A Gwent NHS Hospital Trust spokesman said she was a valued member of staff.
"I know it might seem strange to some people but I've been working at the hospital for 21 years, and it is a big part of my life," said Ms Gilbert, who said she still plays the Lotto.
"I just wanted to get back to normality.
"The best way doing that was to stay in my old routine, including going back to work.
"I'm determined to keep my feet on the ground and just wanted to put my life back on an even keel after all the excitement."
Ms Gilbert, who has vowed not to move from her terraced house in Abertillery, said nobody had thought she would return to the morning shift at Cwmbran's Llanfrechfa Grange Hospital.
A Gwent NHS Hospital Trust spokesman said: "We are delighted for Joanne at her win.
"We are pleased she has come back to work and is a valued member of the staff at the hospital."
Ms Gilbert realised she had become a millionaire on Saturday while staying in a caravan in Weston-Super-Mare with her five-year-old grandson Rhys.
She won £1,146,172 after her six numbers - 11, 17, 24, 28, 41 and 47 came up.
These numbers, chosen from a mixture of family birthdays, had been used by Ms Gilbert since the lottery started.
Since winning, she has been on a week's trip to Turkey with her 31-year-old son Marcus and plans to take her grandson to Disneyland in Florida.
