Shaun Murphy scoffs Mini Cheddars and Celebrations in dressing room during World Snooker Championship final

WORLD Snooker Championship finalist Shaun Murphy has delighted fans after he was spotted munching on Mini Cheddars in his dressing room.

The 38-year-old is up against Mark Selby in the final at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield where he is looking to become a two-time world champion.

Murphy – who won the tournament in 2005 – has finished as runner-up in his last two final appearances in 2009 and 2015.

But he appeared unfazed by the challenge to beat the Jester from Leicester, who is a three-time world champion.

During the break, the camera in Murphy's dressing showed the Magician enjoying a packet of Mini Cheddars, while a box of Celebrations appeared to have been eaten.

And snooker supporters were loving seeing the potter tuck into some snacks.

One person tweeted: "In the heat of battle, the Magician turns to the Mini Cheddars.

"A bold move from the 2005 world champion, who appears to have polished off a box of Celebrations on the side there. Will he be celebrating with the trophy tonight?"

Another quipped: "Thoroughly enjoyed the cameras switching to Shaun Murphy in his dressing room eating a pack of Mini Cheddars."

A third added: "Shaun Murphy with a box of Celebrations in his dressing room #pureclass."

Murphy has been watching his diet recently as he joined a weight loss challenge to raise money for charity ahead of the Championships.


After witnessing his mid-match snack, one fan said: "I don’t like this camera in the dressing room. I feel intrusive."

Another impressed fan remarked: "Is that a box of M&S chocolate biscuits too? The dressing room to be in."

One simply stated: "I’m not comfortable with a camera being in their dressing rooms. I think the players deserve a bit of privacy when they aren’t playing ."

At the end of Monday's afternoon session, Selby leads Murphy 14-11 having won the last frame of the afternoon session.
