Snooker Connections


The Madness frontman reveals his lifelong interest in snooker, and a fascination with war history, which has shaped his current television role. Suggs knows Jimmy White. Of course he does. Both grew up in the 1970s, both would frequent the snooker clubs of London Town throughout their teenage years. (when they should both have been at school).

Sometimes on the baize, sometimes at the bar. Both support Chelsea. Both were working-class heroes and, perhaps, still are. And both were, on occasion, susceptible to a bit of fun on a night out.
