  • The legend

    Bobby George (born December 16, 1945) is an English darts player and pundit, who is known as one of the leading characters in the game for his flamboyant entrances (in which the 'King of Darts' comes in wearing a crown and cloak and holding a candelabra in his teeth to the sound of Queen's 'We Are the Champions') and many medallions and rings.

    Although he became one of the sports biggest names, George initially worked as a floor layer and did not actually take up darts until the age of 29. He has famously never won the World Professional Darts Championship, losing the 1980 final against Eric Bristow, and to John Part in 1994. Nevertheless he has won a number of titles, including the News of the World Championship in 1979 and again in 1986 (defeating Rick Ney in the final), as well as the Butlins Grand Masters in 1979 and 1980 and the Nations Cup in 1980 (as part of an England triples team with Tony Brown and John Lowe). His profile as a darts player has fallen off in recent years, although he still takes part in the qualifying rounds for the World Championships.

    His most memorable World Championship moment came in 1994, when going down 4-1 to Sweden's Magnus Caris and with a very bad back, Bobby came back to win the match 5-4 in sets and reach the final in one of the most famous comebacks in the history of darts. However, his back problems resurfaced in the final leading to a 6-0 loss to John Part.

    Since 1998 he has been a co-presenter on the BBC darts coverage to Ray Stubbs and his media career has grown as a result. In 2004 he starred in the British comedy film One Man and His Dog [1] and later he followed in the footsteps of fellow professional darts player Andy Fordham by taking part in the ITV programme Celebrity Fit Club. In 2006, he appeared in a regular segment of UK TV Show Brainiac: Science Abuse series 4, in which he played darts in order to explode caravans. He was also a team captain in Showbiz Darts again alongside Andy Fordham.

    His home, George Hall is an 18-bedroom mansion built by his own hand[verification needed]. George jokingly refers to it as "the house that Bobby built". The Hall is located on 12 acres of land near the borders of Essex and Suffolk, and has well-stocked fish lakes. The layout of the rooms have been designed to look like a dart. Bobby admitted it was "mad" but he liked it as it was and dosen't want to change it.

    Darts fans from around the world come to fish in Bobby`s ponds (fishing being his other passion).
