There is usually an eclectic range of things to do and see at Alexandra Palace for players with downtime between matches at the Masters. The iconic and ornate building, originally built in 1873 and sitting on top of Muswell Hill, plays host to all manner of concerts and exhibitions, as well as boasting one of the finest views of the city from the south side. Bizarrely the snooker is sharing the premises with a model engineering exhibition which starts on Friday. And the ice rink on site is being used this week as a practice area for the current reality TV series of Dancing On Ice, with the likes of former X-Factor singer Ray Quinn and ex-Eastenders actor Todd Carty dreaming of triple Salchows and toe-loops. Stephen Hendry and Ken Doherty may have missed the chance to get their skates on next year, though, with the series set to be scrapped.
