The biggest names in the world of darts join forces with a host of famous faces for special pro-celebrity darts tournaments - all in support of Comic Relief and Sport Relief.

Presented by Gabby Logan, this sporting event sees celebrities become darts players and each adopt their own darts persona, complete with nickname, costume, props and the all important walk on music.

Comedians and celebrities Lee Mack, Bob Mortimer, Liza Tarbuck, Sean Lock, Tim Vine, Roisin Conaty, Richard Osman and Martin Offiah team up with superstar players including Martin 'Wolfie' Adams, Bobby 'King of Bling' George, Andy 'The Viking' Fordham, Anastasia 'From Russia With Love' Dobromyslova, Ted 'The Count' Hankey, Deta 'The Dark Destroyer' Hedman, Darryl 'The Dazzler' Fitton and Richie 'Rich' George and compete for the coveted title of Let's Play Darts For Comic Relief Champions 2015.

The Let's Play Darts For Sport Relief Champions 2016 title will be contested by Martin 'Wolfie' Adams, Glen 'Duzza' Durrant, Scott 'Scotty Dog' Mitchell, Deta 'The Dark Destroyer' Hedman, Bobby 'King of Darts' George, Anastasia 'From Russia With Love' Dobromyslova, Daryl 'The Dazzler' Fitton and Andy 'The Viking' Fordham, plus celebrities Kate Humble, Jordan Stephens, Tim Vine, Greg Davies, Mike Tindall, Katherine Ryan, Robbie Savage and Jon Richardson.

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

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

The sport of darts is known for its larger than life characters, dramatic entrances and incredible atmosphere. Let's Play Darts mixes all these qualities with an extra large helping of laughter thrown in.

The first series also featured appeal films from celebrities including Lenny Henry, Liza Tarbuck, Emma Willis, Angela Griffin and Gabby Logan.
