Hazel O'Sullivan traded darts for football after she hooked up with Everton winger Andros Townsend.
The Irish model, 34, worked as walk-on girl before they were scrapped by PDC chiefs. And it was during an event at the O2 Arena in 2013 when she met Townsend, who was then playing for Tottenham.
The pair hit it off and they haven't looked back since then. While Townsend has made a name for himself on the pitch, including picking up 13 caps for England, Hazel became a famous face from her darts work and also appearing on the 14th series of Big Brother UK.

They now have two kids together, Aria and Andros Junior, and lead a quiet life in Liverpool. Speaking to the Irish Sun in October 2021, Hazel said: "I have to hand it to Andros, he’s a full-on dad.
"He gets them up in the morning, he leaves the house now at around 9.30 and drops Aria to school. It’s a lot more flexible up here, when we lived in London he had to travel a lot to the other side of London, an hour and a half each way, so it’s a lot better in Liverpool.

"But he’s very good, very hands-on with the kids and he doesn’t drink or go clubbing or that kind of thing, he’s very family-oriented, which is all you can really ask for the father of your two kids to be."
Townsend, 31, joined Everton last year after five years at Crystal Palace. He made 25 appearances for the Toffees last season but has been sidelined since March with an anterior cruciate ligament injury suffered in an FA Cup clash against Palace.
But rather than sit on the sidelines, he's continued to progress his broadcasting career and worked as a co-commentator at the World Cup for ITV, earning plaudits from viewers who hailed him as a "breath of fresh air".
Hazel joined him in Qatar and documented their experience on her Instagram. They could be seen enjoying a sushi dinner at lavish Japanese restaurant Morimoto Doha and relaxing by the pool in-between games.
