The Betway UK Championship, snooker’s first Triple-Crown event of the season, gets underway next month however it will be without defending champion O’Sullivan.

This will be O’Sullivan’s first experience of tournament-long punditry adding to the exclusive “Ronnie O’Sullivan Show” already broadcast on British Eurosport.

The five-time world champion will be the only noticeable absentee, with the rest of snooker’s top players expected to compete.

The tournament is considered second only to the World Championship in prestige, regularly attracting sell-out crowds at the York Barbican venue.
