Neil Robertson survived an almighty fightback from Stuart Bingham to win 9-8 in the first semi-final of the williamhill.com UK Championship in York.

The world number one took the afternoon session 5-3 and seemed set for victory when he won the first three in the evening.

Bingham, the conqueror of Ronnie O'Sullivan, found amazing resolve to battle back to 8-8 but could not complete the job as Robertson took a lengthy decider to reach his first UK final.
