Hello people, it's me - Ross Kemp's Nan here with the daily round up of The World Snooker Championship from the Crucible in Sheffield.
I hope your stocked up on tea and biscuits as the tournament rolls on for seventeen days! Whoa! Heaven for snooker fans!
Day 1 sees five matches get under way - including defending champion John Higgins against Liang Wenbo from China. He's come a long way! Looks like he's not come on his own though as his fellow countryman Cao Yupeng plays Mark Allen from Northern Ireland.
Not travelling so far are Englishmen David Gilbert and Martin Gould, who face each other, and Stuart Bingham who faces another scot Stephen Hendry.
I hope my Sky Plus has subtitles - and that's just for the Scotch lads! Be sure to 'Sky Plus' all my reports so you can keep up with the Snooker gossip. Until then, byeeeee
