The 2007 Maplin UK Championship was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 8 and 16 December 2007 at the Telford International Centre in Telford, England.

In the final frame of his quarter-final match against Marco Fu, Mark Selby won the longest ever televised frame of snooker, which lasted 77 minutes. This beat the previous record of 74 minutes, which took place between Peter Ebdon and Graeme Dott in the 2006 World Snooker Championship final.[1]

Ronnie O'Sullivan compiled a maximum break in the deciding frame of his semi-final match against Mark Selby, his eight maximum, equalling the official record of tournament 147 breaks first set by Stephen Hendry. This was the second consecutive ranking tournament, where he has made a 147.[2]
