Revved-up Rob Cross will throw a massive “Aussie style” BBQ party to celebrate his first TV title of the year in the World Series.

The World Champion defeated rival Michael van Gerwen 11-6 with a blistering seven successive legs to snatch the Brisbane Masters title on Sunday night.

Now, the Hastings battler is planning a big Down Under-themed night when he arrives back in the UK this week.

"Obviously I'm buzzing to get the win - it's been a long time coming to be honest," Cross told Live Darts. 

"I've been close so many times and I've been happy with my form. But it's nice to get over the line.

"We've been away for so long now with the World Series so I can't wait to get back to my wife and kids.

"The plan is to celebrate with a massive Aussie style BBQ, obviously. I'm bringing back cork hats for everyone and we'll have a good night.

"I'm hoping that the weather in Hastings is like it has been in Brisbane. I might even take the dog Bolt for a walk down on the beach and have a swim. At least there's no sharks!"

Cross is convinced that the tide is turning for his defending world championship campaign after a few minor blips.

He added: "To be quite honest I don't think there's been any blips. My form is very close to what it was a year ago.

"The difference is the expectation of me is much greatest now because of winning the Worlds. I accept that and it's a good thing to be honest.

"I'm still relatively the new kid on the block. Michael and Gary [Anderson] have been around for so long, they are used to the circuit and cope better with the travelling and the upset to their routines.

"They know how to deal with all that. I'm still learning but I’m doing that fast and the World Series win proves that.

"I feel I am gently progressing into this year. The aim now is to gradually peak at the right time, I hope I can do that as we get into the big tournaments again."
