The DeathList 2011

On today, gone tomorrow.

The DeathList 2011

The final decisions have been made and DeathList 2011 has been finalised and is in play. The list comprises the celebrities thought most likely to pass away during 2011. A brief summary 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 expire shortly. Normally a maximum of 25 candidates on the previous year’s list can reappear on the next list. DeathList 2010 was a big disappointment, chalking up its lowest score for over a decade, but, with the performance in the latter half of the year, surely there are signs that the dry season is behind us. This year's list has the unique feature of not including the surviving number 1 pick from the previous year. Will the re-evaluated strategy pay off?
