Watch Fallon Sherrock destroy Piers Morgan at darts on GMB and auction the winning board for an autism charity

FROM creating history at Alexandra Palace to beating Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, it has been a whirlwind week for darts hero Fallon Sherrock.

In one of the great moments in women’s sport, Fallon put her name in the record books by becoming the first woman to beat a man at a world darts championship.

The 25-year-old super mum defied the odds and kept her bottle to produce a stunning 3-2 win over Ted Evetts and leave fans at the Ally Pally rocking.

So it is no wonder the lady from Buckinghamshire is high demand for TV's biggest shows the following morning.

Less than 12 hours after defeating Evett she was back throwing darts at a board this time against Good Morning Britain host Morgan.

Fallon later revealed she is auctioning off the board she used at the Ally Pally to raise money for the National Autistic Society.

Her five-year-old son Rory is supported by the charity.

And Morgan immediately donated £1,000 to the cause.

Sherrock hit 41 against the TV host, considerably lower than her 91.48 average last night, but was still enough to defeat cocky Morgan who threw 22.

After their duel Morgan congratulated Sherrock despite spelling her name wrong.

He wrote on Twitter: "Last night Fallon Sherlock became the first woman to ever beat a man in the World Men's Darts Championship... and today, she beat me.

"So she's obviously brilliant. Congrats @Fsherrock - amazing achievement!"

Good Morning Britain's official account also tweeted their match with the caption: "Easiest victory ever, @Fsherrock."

Last night I proved to myself and everyone else that us women can play darts against men

Speaking to Morgan and co-host Susanna Reid about last night's victory, she said: "I've always had the game but us women have never had the opportunity to prove it.

"Last night I proved to myself and everyone else that us women can play darts against men and we can beat them."

Her road to success has been far from easy and five years ago her world was rocked by news she had developed a serious kidney problem, just months after giving birth to son Rory.

And to make matters even worse, she was trolled on the internet when her face swelled up as a result of side-effect from the medication she took.

Sherrock said: “About six months after I had my little boy in April 2014, I ended up getting a kidney disease.

“I started to feel unwell. I didn’t know what was going on until I was diagnosed.

“It was a worrying time. I started taking medication to weaken my immune system because that is what was attacking my kidneys.

“The problem was when I went on different medication, I suffered side effects.

“And the side effects caused ‘moon face’, where my face swelled up. It was a reaction.

“When I played in the BDO worlds on TV, I received a lot of criticism for how I looked.

“I’m not going to dwell on what someone has said if it doesn’t affect my life.

“I think that attitude helps to strengthen my character.”
