Also last night, Eloise Melbourne sat front row at Alexandra Palace. The 21-year-old girlfriend of World Cup star Luke Littler, 16, watched her boyfriend play the final in London, but she has also had to deal with a lot of online hate in recent days. “There are terrible things being said about my daughter,” her mother testifies angrily.

Following his quarter-final win over Brendan Dolan, Luke Littler slapped his girlfriend Eloise in front of the cameras. The paparazzi clicked impatiently and the girl suddenly appeared on all English news sites. But with this attention also came criticism.

In particular, the fact that Milburn, 21, is in a relationship with a 16-year-old boy, has earned her a lot of hate messages. Her mother, Amanda, said this in an interview with the Daily Mail. Melbourne even deleted her Instagram account in the meantime.

“Terrible things are being said about my daughter on social media, which has angered me and my husband Phil,” Amanda said. “Eloise has been accused of all sorts of things, including that she is only with Luke for his money. Disgusting lies, because money and fame don't matter to her at all. Our daughter is with Luke because she loves him. Plain and simple.”

Amanda admits that the many harsh reactions hurt the Melbourne family. “While Eloise is just a young, beautiful girl in a budding relationship. She should have the opportunity to enjoy that. I've never met Luke myself. Eloise doesn't think it's a good idea for us coming to Alexandra Palace yet, because it's still early in the relationship.”

Xbox as a shared passion

Eloise Milburn is a beautician and also plays darts herself, albeit at an amateur level. She has also been spotted alongside Littler in the stands during football games, a passion the duo shares. They met each other while playing FIFA (now EA Sports FC) online on Xbox.

Littler and Milburn only met four months ago and have been dating for six weeks. They've spent the last few days together in London, but the pair actually have a long-distance relationship. Littler lives in Warrington (Cheshire) and Melbourne, more than 300 kilometers away, in Hersham, near London.
