Supercue TONY KNOWLES, snooker’s number one sex symbol tells his own sensational story.
The ladies call me ‘The Lancashire Hot Pot’. ‘Cos I’m a really tasty dish.
Being sexy is a big bonus when you’re playing snooker. My opponents are often distracted by how sexy I am. Snooker is a big money game, but money can’t buy good looks, as all the other players know only too well.
I mean, look at Big Bill Werbenuik. He isn’t even remotely attractive . Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins is quite sexy, but not in the same league as me.
I remember at one tournament I was playing Alex and he only needed one ball to win. At the time I was so sexy he couldn’t concentrate. He missed the shot and I won. There were 3,000 girls in the audience that night – and I was sleeping with all of them.
A few years back I was so sexy it was affecting my cue action. And I was having difficulty walking. My doctor told me I was too sexy and put me on a diet. He also gave me some tablets but I remember being so sexy I couldn’t swallow them.
I’m still sexy, and I’m getting sexier every day. On my way to a tournament recently I was so sexy my car blew up, and people complained that I had been interfering with short wave radio signals . That’s how sexy I am at times.
When I eventually arrived at the venue there was so many girls waiting inside to see me, there wasn’t room for a snooker table.
Girls find me irresistible. The other night I was staying in an hotel. I took so many girls back to my room with me the floor collapsed.
Being so sexy I get a hell I get a lot of fan mail. On an average day I get 500 proposals from would-be brides. And I usually get a least twice that amount.
I have other hobbies as well as girls, I used to keep dogs, but I was so sexy I had to have them destroyed.
I’m planning to write a book at the moment. It’s going to be about how sexy I am. The only problem is I don’t know where I’m going to find enough paper to write it on.
