Darts loving mother and son strike it rich on TV game show

A reboot of the classic TV game show "Bullseye" was a big winner for a darts-loving mother and son from a Staffordshire Moorlands village.

Debbie and Callum Matthews, from Blythe Bridge, struck it rich on Saturday night's "Alan Carr's Epic Gameshow" on ITV, emerging with a host of glittering prizes - including the star prize, an £18,000 new Mini Classic car.

"Bullseye" was a ratings hit in the 1970's - when presented by comedian Jim Bowen - and featured pairs of contestants.

Callum, 23, who plays darts for Staffordshire and has represented England, threw the dart which captured the car in the 'epic final,' adding to the list of prizes won in the lead up rounds - including a holiday for four in Mexico and a £5,000 bathroom makeover.

A delighted Callum said: "It was amazing. It was my first time on TV and I really enjoyed the experience."

Mum Debbie, 51, not only answered the quiz questions leading up to the 'epic final', she also potted some of the prizes herself with her dart throwing.

"I loved Bullseye," she said.
