Steve Davis called time on his glittering 38-year professional career in 2016. Announcing his decision at the World Championship, he said: “It has been fantastic. The game will move on to other places but I feel like the grandfather of the sport. I will still do exhibitions and enjoy snooker and be part of it. Hopefully I’ll be with the BBC team for as many years as they want me. I will still be involved in the coaching and schools project because I think those things are important. I just don’t want to play anymore, it’s too difficult.”
It was during the 80’s at the time of Snookers explosion on our TV screens through the advent of colour that Steve became a household name off the table appearing on shows such as the Morecambe and Wise 2001 Christmas Show, the Cannon and Ball show, Blue Peter, Swap Shop, Question of Sport and many more.
Steve developed the tag ‘Interesting’ after being immortalised on the ITV show Spitting Image and was also voted Haircut and Arse of the year during the 80’s.
