Darts walk-on girls axed in PC storm hit back and ‘are more in demand than ever’

The darts walk-on girls who were axed in a PC storm say they are more in demand than ever.

Fans were outraged when Daniella Allfree and Charlotte Wood were sacked in January 2018.

The decision was blamed on ­snowflakes who believed their role escorting players to the oche was not politically correct.

But now Daniella and Charlotte have hit a career bullseye and say they would not go back to their previous jobs even if the Professional Darts Company, which runs the big competitions, changed their minds.

Charlotte says they are very popular at exhibition matches, and their calendars are flying off the shelves.

She said: “They might not be able to see us on TV but people are still really keen to see us in the flesh.

‘It’s been three years since we were axed from the darts and our calendars seem to be in more demand than ever.

“We are both so overwhelmed every year. We have amazing fans, many who are women, which is nice.”

The PDC revealed in 2018 the gorgeous models would no longer be required at big events.

The beauties had been a popular part of the spectacle in a tradition stretching back more than 12 years.

Eight-times major winner James Wade even married his walk-on girl Sammi Marsh.

Thousands of fans went on to sign a petition demanding the women remain part of the show.

A PDC spokesperson said at the time: ”We regularly review all aspects of our events and this move has been made following feedback from our host broadcasters.”

An ITV spokesman said: “The decision was taken in consultation with ITV and we fully endorse this move.”
