Darts player Eric Bristow slams ITV's Britain's Got Talent for offering him £100 to appear on the show.

Five-time world darts champion Eric Bristow has hit out at Britain's Got Talent bosses for offering him a "joke" payment of £100 to appear on the show.

The 57-year-old has revealed that he was asked by ITV producers to appear alongside show hosts Ant and Dec to feature in a segment called 'Feel The Celebrity'.

He wrote on Twitter: "I have been offered to appear on @BGT with @antanddec on a feature called 'feel the celebrity' in Birmingham in February but I ain't going to do it because have a guess how much they've offered me as a wage for 2 hours filming?

"Go on, have a guess? @BGT. Do bear in mind that @antanddec reportedly get £5 million each, so how much then have @BGT offered me to appear, keep them guesses coming in the enormous sum of £100.

"So thanks but no thanks. So I've turned it down and agreed to do something else on the 6th February. £100 it's a joke isn't it?"

Bristow appeared in the 2012 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here.
