Laura Woods left ‘missing’ World Darts Championship after seeing throwback Instagram picture

Laura Woods was left reminiscing about her time presenting at the PDC World Darts Championship after being tagged in a picture by Ted Evetts.

The former talkSPORT Breakfast host now heads up TNT Sports’ Champions League coverage but, before her time covering Europe’s premier club football competition, Woods was part of Sky Sports’ coverage of the annual Ally Pally event.

With this year’s competition in full flow, Woods was given a timely reminder of her stint at the event and was quick to look back fondly on her time.

Darts star Evetts took to Instagram to share a picture of him being interviewed by Woods alongside the caption: “Throwback to winning at the worlds and an interview with @laurawoodsy.”

Woods later replied to the posted writing: “Great picture! Man, I miss the worlds!”

Like many of us, Woods is enjoying a backseat view of this year’s event which enters its fifth day.

There was a winning start for Gerwyn Price, while Dutch great Michael van Gerwen gets his tournaments underway on Tuesday.

But there were no celebrations for James Wade, who became the first seeded player to exit the competition as the four-time semi-finalist suffered a shock first round defeat to Canadian Matt Campbell.

All other matches have gone as expected so far with Michael Smith, Luke Humphries and Gary Anderson all picking up wins and advancing to round three.

Smith is the reigning champion but his chances of landing back-to-back victories will be tested by some heavy-hitting competition this time round.

Humphries is the favourite to land this year’s prize but Van Gerwen, Price and Anderson are all in with a shout of coming out on top.

The tournament comes to a close on January 3, where the winner will pick up a whopping £500,000 prize.
