Best known for: Being five times darts world champion

Career high: Dominating the sport in the early 1980s

Love life: Single

Jungle phobias: None

Missing any special occasion in the jungle? A darts competition in Wolverhampton

What he will miss most? Nothing as long as he can smoke in the jungle

Words of wisdom: "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."

He says he will have no hesitation sticking up for anyone who finds they are being bullied. "I won't put up with anyone getting bullied or anyone who has a go at a woman," he warns.
