Fallon Sherrock could be about to swap the oche for the ice rink after auditioning to take part in ITV’s Dancing On Ice.

Sherrock made worldwide headlines by reaching the Last 32 of the PDC World Championship last December and has since enjoyed new-found fame as the most recognisable female darts player on the planet.

She acquired the nickname ‘The Queen of The Palace’ after beating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic at Alexandra Palace, before narrowly losing out to Chris Dobey in a historic run.

The 26-year-old missed out on a PDC Tour Card at Qualifying School in January but did feature as a ‘Challenger’ in the Premier League, as well as the UK Open, and has since been participating in the Modus Icons of Darts Live League.

She was due to feature in every World Series event this year, including the US Masters in New York, before they were postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sherrock was among a host of celebrities pictured arriving at the Slough Ice Arena in Berkshire earlier this week for secret auditions for the popular TV series Dancing On Ice.

A total of 17 celebrities, including former Chelsea and England footballer Wayne Bridge and actress Denise van Outen, turned up for auditions to be one of the final 12 on the show.

There are likely to be other auditions for celebrities based in more remote areas and abroad before the final participants are confirmed.

The show, which first aired in 2006, will begin its latest series in January, with training kicking off in the autumn.

If Sherrock was to be chosen to take part, she would become the first darts player to do so.

Five-time World Champion Eric Bristow famously appeared on ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ in 2012, finishing fourth.
