Profession: Darts Player and commentator

Best known for: His World Championship-winning darts career and nickname ‘The Crafty Cockney’

Phobias: None. (Apparently!)

Relationship Status: Single

As one of the world’s most famous darts players, Eric Bristow is renowned for keeping cool under pressure, but he reckons living in the jungle will be a tough match. “Going on I’m A Celebrity… will definitely be more tense than playing in a darts game. But as the day gets nearer to going into the jungle, I am getting excited. It’s going to be so much fun and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Will he miss his arrows? “I won’t miss my darts board. I am always travelling with the darts games, and so it will be nice to be in one place. I might try and use sticks or stones to make up a game. The big thing for me is not getting bored.”

He’s also determined not to bottle out of any of the challenges: “If I have to jump out of a plane, then it has got to be done,” he says. “I want to be able to look in the mirror afterwards and be able to say to myself that I didn’t bottle it and I gave it a try.”
