Free Virgin Media gift

Hi,

Yesterday when i logged into the internet i kept being redirected to a Virgin message saying i won a free gift of Iphone 11 and made me make a payment of £1 to Nonstoptunes. was this genuine and will get the phone?

after i amde the payment it just took me back to making another payment so not sure if it actually went trhough.

No its not genuine, you won't get the phone, might want to look at cancelling that card as there is no telling who you actually gave your CC details to

Also scan your system with MalwareBytes Anti Malware and consider potentially installing a popup/advert blocker in your browser

As already advised you must takes steps to secure your bank account/credit card account by informing them that you have fallen for this scam.  Otherwise you can expect to find a lot more than just £1 removed from your account.
