Darts fan banned again for looking like Jesus

A bearded darts fan has been banned from a tournament for the second year running - because he looks like Jesus.

Nathan Grindal was kicked out of last year's Cash Converters Players Championship after the 5,000-strong crowd saw him on the big screen and chanted "Jesus".

The cries reportedly put off players including Phil 'The Power' Taylor and Mr Grindal, 34,was asked leave the event at Butlins in Minehead, Somerset.

But when he tried to return last week for this year's tournament, security wouldn't let him through the doors.

Mr Grindal, an Australian, complained: "Two big beef-head security guards dragged me into an office and told me they wouldn't let me watch the darts.

"I felt quite intimidated. The head of security told me they would not be letting me into the tournament as they didn't want a repeat of last year.

"It's not my fault that I look like Jesus."

A Butlins spokesman said: "Based on his disruptive behaviour last year, both Butlins and the organisers, PDC Darts, took the decision not to allow Mr Grindal into the resort."
