The DeathList 2010

On today, gone tomorrow.

The DeathList 2010

The research is over and the candidates have been chosen for DeathList 2010. The list comprises the celebrities thought most likely to die during 2010. A quick rundown of the rules: Candidates must be famous in their own right such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media, however candidates cannot be famous purely for the fact they are likely to die soon. A maximum of 25 candidates on the previous year’s list can reappear on the next year’s list. The 2009 list recovered from a slow start (and some shocking misses!) to record a valiant 12 deaths. No dead certs on this year but hopefully a solid list that can deliver plenty. Despite the valued contributions of the forum members, the long-standing record of 14 deaths is starting to look tough to beat.
