World number two Judd Trump suffered a surprise 6-3 defeat by Matthew Selt in the third round of the UK Championship.

Tournament favourite Trump began well, taking the opener with a break of 68.

However, Selt grew into the contest and made four half-century breaks to reel off four of the next five frames.

With Trump threatening a fightback, Selt won a pivotal eighth frame on the black to lead 5-3 and sealed victory and a last-16 place with a superb 128 clearance.
