Phil and his wife Jessica are expecting their first baby this year, and Phil said the car will be 'perfect' for the young family.

He said: "We’ve had a shaky start to the year and I’m so shocked and thankful that this happened to me!

“I love Minis, they’re really great cars and owning one will be perfect for when the baby arrives!

“The team knew before I did but they’re kept it a complete secret. They are so great and I’m so blessed to be able to work there. It was lovely to have the surprise - I really had no idea, no one had said anything!”

Christian said it was 'really great to be able to surprise Phil' at his workplace.

He said: “We've only just launched the Midweek Mini competition and it was lovely to give our first brand new car away to such a great guy.”
