Darts star jokingly asks for stew and chips during commentary – and fan delivers
17th February 2023

A darts star who jokingly asked for some stew and chips while commentating at the Premier League Darts had his request fulfilled.

World No.35 Kim Huybrechts was part of the commentary team for the Belgian television channel VTM for this week's third round in Glasgow on Thursday night. One of their viewers obviously felt sorry for Huybrechts and commentator Matthias de Vlieger after their request, delivering them stew and chips.

The food was delivered to their commentary point after being bought by an anonymous viewer and Huybrechts was pictured eating the meal while showing the camera his thumbs up in approval of the stew and chips.

De Vlieger tweeted a picture of Huybrechts enjoying the food with the caption: "Best television moment of the year, already asking for Fries with stew on the antenna and actually getting it from an anonymous viewer. We will be laughing about this for years to come @KimHuybrechts. PS: it tasted good."

A fan questioned if the Belgian darts star had shared the food with fellow commentator De Vlieger. The television star replied: "Yes, I did not go home hungry."

Interest in the Premier League Darts will have been boosted in Belgium thanks to the decision by the PDC and Sky Sports selectors to give Dimitri Van den Bergh a spot in the eight-player tournament.

Fans were left baffled when it was revealed that world No.11 Van den Bergh was one of the four players selected for the lucrative series, given the nod over the likes of world No.5 Luke Humphries, former world champion Rob Cross, or European Champion Ross Smith.

However, the Belgian star has been holding his own in the tournament and after three events has five points, sitting above Michael van Gerwen and point-less Peter Wright in the current league table.

Fans in Belgium would have been celebrating on Thursday night as Van den Bergh beat home star Wright 6-4 in their quarter-final match. Afterwards Wright said he wanted to 'wreck the joint' after letting his Scottish fans down in Glasgow.

The sight of Huybrechts eating chips in the commentary box would have made Wright's mood even worse after the Belgian star knocked him out of this year's world championships at the third round stage.
