Ebdon finally realised his dream last season when he lifted the 2002 World Championship crown, to add to his four other ranking titles.

It was sweet revenge for the Wellingborough player, who saw off Stephen Hendry - the player who defeated him in the 1996 final - in a dramatic final frame of the match.

The epic, which finished in the early hours of Tuesday morning, was watched by a peak television audience of nearly eight million.

However, this year he has failed to build on that success, and that victory came in his last final appearance.

But the 33-year-old is the kind of player who thrives on the big occasions, and it does not get any bigger than The Crucible.

Ebdon is renowned for his fitness regime during the season, which involves swimming several miles each week.

He has also adopted a strict diet, cutting out many luxuries including his beloved Liquorice Allsorts.

The world number three is also passionately involved with the game's governing body.
