Peter Wright dresses up as GRINCH at the PDC Darts World Championship – and steals Christmas from Mickey Mansell

SHOWMAN Peter Wright came dressed as the pot-bellied Grinch – and he stole Mickey Mansell’s Christmas.

Snakebite, 52, promised a fancy outfit for his return as defending darts world champion after taking a month off to look after his ailing wife.

And he delivered that last night, arriving at Ally Pally’s in a red Santa Claus top, bright green hair, pants and mittens and growing a big bushy white beard.

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s unforgettably grumpy and mean character made it the most OTT performance ever

Now that he was wearing the same crazy costume TWO YEARS AGO.

Mean Green Machine Wright – who hit a 121 finish with the bull – will now play in the third round after Christmas after losing just one leg in a 3-0 win over an average opponent.

Wright said, “This is the Christmas Grinch, he accepted Christmas. He loves it instead of hating it.

“It took me a month to grow the beard. I figured I had nothing else to do but take care of my wife Jo – so I figured I might as well grow a beard for Christmas.

“The entire outfit took two hours. Jo started getting it ready on Tuesday.”

SAMPSON GRANT provided the first upset of the 16-day tournament by defeating world No. 45 and highly sought-after Irishman Keane Barry 3-1 – and then claiming victory BUS back to his hotel.
