The 16-year-old has taken, not just the darts, but the sports world by storm with his immense performances at Alexandra Palace.
The teenager has hammered every play put in front of him on his World Championship debut, surging into the final where he will meet Luke Humphries on Wednesday night.
He has been all business on the oche, but he has enjoyed himself on his trip to London from his home in Warrington, meeting some Arsenal and Tottenham stars over the festive period.
Littler is a Manchester United fan, though, so was especially excited to receive some message from Red Devils stars of the past and present during his unforgettable run at Ally Pally.
After his latest masterclass – a 6-2 thrashing of Rob Cross in the semi-finals – Littler revealed which Old Trafford heroes he had been in contact with.
‘I’ve got a lot of followers now,’ he said. ‘I got a message off Luke Shaw from Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand and I had a message off Gary Neville and Jonny Evans before my game against Barney, I think.
‘It’s just crazy. People who I’ve looked up to and especially my club Manchester United wishing me luck.’
Littler has been a big bit with footballers, visiting the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and watching a 3-1 win over Bournemouth with Spurs and England star James Maddison.
The former Leicester City man is a big darts fan and invited Littler to watch the game with him in a box.
The teenage talent also grabbed a picture with Declan Rice and Aaron Ramsdale earlier in the tournament, saying it was the Arsenal and England players that asked him for the shot.
Littler is a fan of Manchester United and Rugby League side Warrington Wolves, and he said before the tournament started that it is a dream of his to be showing off a trophy at either Old Trafford or The Halliwell Jones Stadium.
‘They sponsored me, Warrington Wolves, they have given me a free season ticket,’ said Littler pre-tournament. ‘I do watch the games every now and then when I can. It’s the same with Manchester United, I will try to get tickets when I am available.’
‘I would love to win any majors and get in touch with them and try to go to one of the stadiums.’
Littler and Humphries meet in the World Darts Championship final from 8pm on Wednesday 3 January.
