The darts star will be hoping to continue his impressive form in Germany tonight

Luke Littler and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Eloise Milburn, have posed for a picture ahead of tonight's Premier League clash with Rob Cross.

The pair have risen to prominence over the past few weeks, ever since Littler's amazing run to the final of the World Darts Championship.

The 17-year-old will be hoping to come out on top against Cross tonight, having fared well on his Premier League debut last week.

Littler got the better of Luke Humphries, impressing as he won 6-2.

However, he was unable to beat Michael Smith with the 33-year-old edging a 6-5 thriller.

Eloise watched last week's action from home, posting images on her Instagram account.

Yet the 22-year-old will be joining Littler for his exciting showdown with Cross in Berlin this evening.

Eloise has taken to Instagram to upload images on her story, with the first showing her boarding a plane.

And she, along with Littler and his mother Lisa, all posed for a selfie once they were seated.

Littler wore a grey cap, with Eloise donning a black and white striped t-shirt shirt.

All three members of the travelling party had smiles on their faces and it'll be intriguing to see if they're still smiling come the close of play tonight.

Littler has spoken out about his form ahead of the match with Cross - and says he's happy with the way he's been playing.

He told PA: "It was good to win on my debut (in Bahrain) and obviously be the youngest person to hit a nine-darter as well.

"But overall it was just match practice for the Premier League, as was Holland.

"Now we are kicking on with the Premier League.

"I know I have got the ability to beat the best. I am just happy with how I have been playing.

"The worlds was a big step up but I have proved I can play with the best and that is why I have got my shot in the Premier League."

Cross, meanwhile, has insisted he doesn't fear Littler.

“Luke is an amazing kid but I still want to beat him," he told the PDC.


“I genuinely don’t think any of the more experienced guys like myself, Michael van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price or Peter Wright actually think of him as a 17-year-old teenager.

"We just see him as someone we have to beat on the stage.
