With Gabby at the helm of the show, the unique sporting event will see celebrities become darts players and each adopt their own darts persona, complete with nickname, costume, props and the all important walk on music.

The star-studded, winner takes all, knockout tournament takes place at Lakeside Frimley Green - the legendary home of world darts.

Tensions will be high as the celebrities step up to the oche to take on one of the biggest challenges of their lifetime. Maximum concentration, nerves of steel and a steady hand are just some of the skills required to through those arrows and hit the bullseye.

There will be hits, misses, hugs and even kisses, plus all the excitement you would expect from a Red Nose Day knock-out tournament.
