Andy Fordham dead latest – Former darts champion dies after suffering organ failure as stars pay tribute

HE WAS ONCE KNOWN FOR HIS SLENDER FRAME AS A TEENAGER

As a teenager, Andy grew up in Charlton, south east London, and was nick named “The Whippet” according to the MailOnline.

His slender build led him to have a keen passion for track-and-field events as well as football.

He told MailOnline of his weight reaching 31st: ‘I never ate a lot, but I ate badly, grabbing convenience foods – takeaways, pizzas, kebabs – because I was always so busy. 

‘If I was working behind the bar, I’d snack on peanuts or crisps, and I never exercised. And then there was the drinking.

‘Looking back, I realise I was an alcoholic. I couldn’t stop myself. I thought I was in control but I wasn’t. 

‘I would start drinking as soon as I went downstairs to open up the bar, at around 11am.”
