Peter Wright’s wife rushed to hospital as emotional darts star reveals that is why he ‘looks like c**p’ during match
DARTS star Peter Wright has admitted that competing over the weekend was “very difficult” after wife Joanne was rushed to hospital just days before.
Wright, 52, is in action at the Grand Slam of Darts in Wolverhampton this week on the say so of his beloved wife.
The Scot was in an understandably subdued mood after beating compatriot Alan Soutar over the weekend – appearing without one of his trademark flamboyant hairstyles.
Opening up on his difficult week, Wright claimed that he “looked like c**p” because he’d been up with wife Joanne in hospital until 4am that morning.
Asked by Viaplay if he’d considered pulling out of the event due to his wife’s ill health, Wright said: “Definitely. But Jo wants me to come here.
“She is in safe hands in the hospital and that’s the main thing.
“It was very difficult. I didn’t know she got taken in yesterday before my match. She was picked up at 8pm in an ambulance and she was in so much pain.
“So I went up to see her after my match and didn’t leave until 4am which is why I look like c**p.
“I didn’t care if I won or lost. Jo wanted me to play. I tried to up the hospital today and [they] wouldn’t let me see her.”
Wright’s trademark hairstyles are produced by wife Joanne, a hairdresser by trade.
