The inspiration for the book came from the trick shots he used to perform on prime time television show ‘Big Break’, which regularly attracted viewers of 10 to 14 million.

As co-presenter to comedian Jim Davidson, John went on to become a household name.

John said: “I had great fun doing Big Break. I miss it even to this day because it was just a pleasure to do.

“All the top players came on to the show like Stephen Hendry, Steve Davis and Jimmy White. They came on and contributed greatly and it was very popular. We did it for just over 10 series and nearly 200 shows.

“It was as good a 10 years as you would get out of anything. It was real good fun.”

Amazing Snooker Trick Shots – Secrets From The Best is £8.95.
