To celebrate the start of the World Darts Championship, title sponsors, William Hill teamed up with their partner football club, Chelsea, to see whether their high flying stars could handle the pressure of stepping up to the oche.

Chelsea stars Eden Hazard, Willy Caballero, Willian and Jorginho were split into two teams to go head to head, with the losing team facing a "bushtucker trial" style forfeit.

Neither side showed much much aptitude on the dart board but in the end it was Hazard and Caballero who were pranked - being blindfolded and having to put their hands in boxes full of 'nasty surprises'.

With the darts kicking off at Alexandra Palace on Thursday, William Hill make Michael van Gerwen the 11/8 favourite to win the title ahead of Gary Anderson (10/3) and Peter Wright (10/1).
