Nugget And Chips

‘IS Steve Davis Ian Beale?

‘Oi! Get to the end of the queue!’

Or, rather, was the former world snooker champion the model for the EastEnders character?

That’s the thing with snooker – it allows the mind to whirl. It gives you time to think, to take moments out from a busy life, to contemplate whether or not Davis has ever aspired to run a fish ‘n’ chip shop and be shot.

Tonight, Davis dashes from Albert Square (and how long before Ian thinks of taking over the snooker club?) to nod his head in Sheffield.

Joining him on the particularly nasty banquette is John Parrott, another former world champion.

And Parrott is also a soap legend, looking like a mixture of Brookside’s Ron Dixon and Sinbad, the window cleaner who only washed the middle of the windows.

Meanwhile, on the green baize, the two remaining second-round matches are played out.’
