Keen darts player Justin Hawkins has been promoted to professional status by a top arrows manufacturer.

BW-DARTS - whose ambassadors include top darts stars BOBBY GEORGE and WAYNE MARDLE - have rewarded Hawkins's aptitude for the popular pub activity, and has asked him to design his own range of the spiky spears.

A spokesman for the firm says, "Justin has always considered himself a darts player first and foremost and throws with precision and flair."

The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE singer himself adds, "I've got the silk shirt and the darts. All I need to do now is work on my game."

Hawkins is currently finishing off work on The Darkness' eagerly awaited follow-up to 2003's PERMISSION TO LAND.
