Simply pool and snooker received a phone call by the TFI production team in early December to enquire about hiring a full size snooker table for one nights filming.
Earlier on that week, Thepchaiya Un Nooh from Thailand could have scooped £44,000.00 for achieving a maximum break of 147 in the UK Championship. He was playing Neil Robertson from Australia in the fifth frame. After scoring 140. All Un Nooh needed to do was to pot an easy black into the corner pocket. Un Nooh, or should I say Ahh No (sorry Thepchaiya) missed and shall go down in snooker folk lore.
The TFI production team thought it would be a good idea to have Un Nooh duplicate the shot on the show.
Chris Evans got guests Mumford and Sons and Nathaniel Rateliff and Chris’s son to pot the black that Un Nooh missed as if to say “EASY” and then poor Un Nooh got another chance to pot the black on our hired table.
