How darts star hit health bullseye

By Jane Elliott
Health reporter, BBC News



Andy now and at his unhealthiest
Professional darts player Andy 'The Viking' Fordham was a man hitting all the wrong numbers.

Thirty one - the number of stones he weighed; 23 - the bottles of lager he drank daily; seven - the number of takeaways he had each week; and one - the liver he was rapidly destroying.

It came to a head last year when he collapsed at a tournament, prompting doctors to warn him to change his ways or face certain death.

But now after losing 17st (108kgs) and stopping drinking Andy is stepping up to the challenge.

The former world champion has done so well that he has been removed from the emergency liver transplant list - with doctors predicting he will not need one now for maybe five years allowing his body to build up strength.


I was not worried about my health at all because at the time you just don't realise there is a problem

Andy Fordham

The 46-year-old said the doctors had given him a terrible wake-up call.

"They told me if I carried on drinking I would be dead within 10 years, which is kind of hard to take in," he said.

"I was really surprised when they said I had a liver problem it is just one of those things you don't think will happen to you. It is always someone else."

Drinking excess

He started drinking at the age of 13 and said it had spiralled, but that at first his football passion had kept his weight down.

But joining the local darts league and drinking with the players combined with a back injury, which stopped him exercising, took its toll on his body and he started piling on the weight.

"I don't know why I got so hooked. I think it was because I was not a falling over drunk," he said.

"I used to use drinking as an excuse for everything that I did.

"At the height it was just so bad I would have at least a crate of lager, spirits and probably two bottles of wine. Right from the start I thought if I didn't drink I couldn't play.
