DENNIS TAYLOR
Currently a snooker commentator with the BBC, during his professional career Dennis won two world-ranking events.
He famously won the 1985 World Championship by beating the then world number one Steve Davis on the final black in one of sport's most memorable finals.
Dennis also won the Grand Prix in 1984 and the Masters in 1987. He is also well known for his sense of humour and his trademark oversized spectacles and was a regular on hit TV snooker game show Big Break.

JIMMY "WHIRLWIND" WHITE

Nicknamed "The Whirlwind" because of his fluid, attacking style of play and popularly referred to as the "People's Champion", Jimmy is a six times World Championship finalist. Other major titles include the World Amateur Champion, Six-red Grand Prix champion, World Seniors Champion and World Doubles champion with Alex Higgins.
Other titles include the UK Championship, the Masters and the Nations Cup and two-time winner of both the World Cup and the British Open,
He was also the first left-handed player, and second player overall, to record a maximum break at the World Championship.

JOHN VIRGO
Famed for his trick shots and comedic impressions of other players, to many snooker fans John is "Mr Snooker".
Turning professional in 1976, he quickly climbed the world-rankings, reaching the semi-finals of the UK Championships the following year. During the 1981 World Championship he performed some of his impressions, including Alex "Hurricane" Higgins, Steve Davis and Ray Reardon. He repeated this act in further World Championships, usually after semi-finals ended earlier than expected.
For 11 years John co-presented Big Break with Jim Davidson. He is now a TV snooker commentator who works primarily during the BBC's coverage of ranking events. His catchphrase when commentating is "where's the cueball going?"
