Entertainment

Bullseye star and darts commentator Tony Green, who worked alongside Jim Bowen on the hit ITV show for more than a decade, has died aged 85.

A statement on the Bullseye Facebook account said “our dear friend and much-loved colleague… passed away peacefully today after a long battle with Alzheimer’s”.

Green, a former amateur player, was a darts commentator for the BBC and also became the announcer and co-host of Bullseye, where he worked for 13 years from 1982.

He returned in a new version of the show which aired from April 2006.

The statement added: “Our love, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Tony’s family, who we hold such affection for, to all of Tony friends and those who were lucky enough to work with him.

“Thank you Tony for all the memories, all the laughs (and trust us there were many!) and all the special times filming Bullseye together, what wonderful years those were and we are honoured to have shared them with you.”
