Babe magnet Peter Manley posts saucy Xmas message that has darts fans in bits

Darts icon Peter Manley has been labelled a “babe magnet” after posting a saucy Christmas message.

Manley is best known for being one of darts’ original pantomime villains thanks to his rivalry with Phil Taylor in the late-1990s and early-2000s. Their most well-known meeting came in the 2002 PDC World Championship final, where Manley infamously stormed off stage after defeat.

It triggered years of booing and jeering from crowds at various venues, a role which ‘One Dart’ later embraced and played up to. But while the 61-year-old is no stranger to his villain tag – being dubbed a “babe magnet” is certainly something new.

That’s what he was called as he took to social media to spread some festive cheer in, let’s say, unique fashion. Manley wrote: “Just like to wish my family, friends and fans from around the world a Merry Christmas from Onedart and Twodart.”

But the accompanying picture was an eye-opener, with Manley’s face edited onto a topless Father Christmas. And sitting on Manley Claus’ lap was a skimpy Santa outfit-wearing woman with his own wife Crissy edited onto her face.

Fans couldn’t get enough of the former World No.1’s raunchy post as they took to the comments to laugh and wish the couple well.

One fan replied to the post on X: “Fantastic, I always knew you were a babe magnet,” while another wrote: “Brilliant,” along with a laughing face emoji.

A third commented: “The best to ever grace the oche,” while a fourth added: “You’ve done some serious working out. Happy Xman Peter and Crissy.”

Manley and wife Crissy were once labelled as “the Posh and Becks” of darts by The Guardian. Crissy herself boasts darts pedigree, having made it to the semi-finals of the BDO World Darts Championship in 2002 and played at the UK Open a year later.
