I’m a darts icon who built my own mansion… now I spend my days ‘maintaining the kingdom’

DARTS icon Bobby George is now enjoying life in his own little “kingdom”.

The King of Bling, now 77, took to Twitter last week to share a video of himself doing some plastering.

George appeared to be working on the the iconic house he built 30 years ago.

Alongside the clip, he tweeted: “Day job maintaining the kingdom of Bobby George!”

The former darts star famously built his own house – known as George Hall – in the 1990’s.

The estate is surrounded by three fishing ponds and 12 acres of land.

George, who was a fan favourite back when he played darts, stayed with the British Darts Organisation (BDO) throughout his career.

Last year, he revealed the reason why he didn’t join the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC).

He said: “I didn’t play PDC because no one asked me. There was Phil Taylor and his dad there and he came round with a bit of scroll paper to sign it.

“I said ‘what’s that?’ He said we’re starting a union so we’d have more television tournaments.

“It didn’t bother me that as I was doing work for the breweries and earning good money.

“I didn’t chase trophies, you can’t eat trophies can you. You can’t go into a restaurant and say I just want to order a trophy, give us a bill. They’d tell you to f*** off wouldn’t they so I went the money side.”

The closest George came to a World Championship title was in 1994, when he was runner-up to John Part.
