Darts Commentator And Bullseye Host Tony Green Dies At 85 After Battle With Alzheimer's

The entertainment world mourns the loss of legendary darts commentator and co-host of the renowned game show Bullseye, Tony Green, who passed away at the age of 85 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease. Green, a native of Hull, rose to fame through his work with BBC, notably alongside Sid Waddell from 1978 to 1994 and later on solo until 2016.

Part of the iconic duo on Bullseye, which captivated audiences from 1982 to 1995, Green’s witty commentary and unique catchphrases made him a household name. His memorable lines like “Keep out of the black and into the red, nothing in this game for two in a bed” became synonymous with the beloved game show.

The official Bullseye Facebook page confirmed Green’s passing with a heartfelt message, expressing condolences to his family, friends, and colleagues. They reminisced about the laughs and special moments filming Bullseye, emphasizing the privilege of working alongside the charismatic Green.

In 2010, Green faced a health scare when diagnosed with tongue cancer, leading to a break from presenting duties. However, he made a swift recovery and resumed his passion for darts, even narrating and commentating on the BBC‘s Let’s Play Darts for Comic Relief in 2015.

Green’s on-screen partnership with Jim Bowen in Bullseye remains etched in viewers’ memories, with their dynamic hosting elevating the show to soaring popularity. Their camaraderie and banter created a unique chemistry that endeared them to audiences, a legacy that lives on in the hearts of many.
