    Aye, mind, there is talent on that list. I think this pool will see a sixth page, but not a seventh (MMMDP is only five pages)

    Dead Pop Stars

    The woke police point the finger rather than the gun, but they use their weapons viciously, with or without probable cause. They charge people and find them guilty “because they can and because of what they (the accused) look like”. And they think intervention is always required - so they’re always willing to spend time, say, prosecuting dead people for using the word “poofter” forty years ago.

    The 100 Club

    Norman Lloyd is older than OdH and a famous actor indeed. Though Olivia de Havilland is a superstar and a dinosaur by all accounts.

    I think there's an argument for Olivia de Havilland actually being the most famous actor to reach her age. Mary Ellis got to 105 but was more known for being a stage actress (though a long career, started during WW1 and ended with a role in one of the last Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes adaptations). Federica Sagor Maas (from my DDP misses for 2012) was a fairly known person in the 1920s but had become obscure by her death nearly a century later aged 111.

    Seemed to have missed off Wesley "Pike" Hall from the line up. I based by information on this here: https://www.feenotes.com/database/artists/hall-jr-wesley-pike/ Yeah I know Wiki doesn't have him, but I was sure enough to post his obit.

    The 100 Club

    I still say Zhou Youguang is the most notable supercentenarian in terms of accomplishments pre-old age. He still wasn't someone you'd see on the red carpet, but simplifying the most frequently-used language in the world (and vastly increasing your homeland's literacy rate in the process) is quite a feat.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    Apparently last year comedian Nick Swardson was hospitalized for a month or so with alcohol poisoning and pneumonia and has been sober since. Looks a lot older than his 43 years if you need an alternative to Artie Lange for off-the-rails comics

    The definition of celebrity is rather looser to the commentators above than it could reasonably be interpreted to be in any other discussion. If we assume 'celebrity' to mean a 'household name' or similar then no know celebrity has lived to 110. However there are some interest names that have got close.....

    Alexander Imich made it to world's oldest man with some degree of prior notability as well.

    Leila Denmark, Shivakumara Swami, Qin Hanzhang, Zoltan Sarosy, Juliana Young Koo, Teresa Hsu... not household names, but quite notable.

    The 100 Club

    3 weeks before Clarissa Eden joins the 100 Club & follows Lady (Mary) Wilson into this distingished group. Has a 'celebrity' ever been a super centenarian? Eileen Ash & Roberta McCain must surely qualify if they manage to reach 110.

    George Soros

    I'm reading he's responsible for research against hydroxychloroquine AND that he's behind the George Floyd protests. I give it about a month until the name Soros appears in a Trump speech.

    Steve Vai is 60 and looks as bad as I have ever seen him but then he never looked that healthy in the first place.

    Sir Geoffrey Boycott

    Sir Geoffrey Boycott, 79, has left as a commentator on Test Match Special after 14 years, citing Covid-19 pandemic and his 2018 heart operation as making the decision to not renew his contract that had expired easy. Not ruled out occasional appearances as a guest. His on air banter with Jonathan ‘Aggers’ Agnew on TMS could be quite amusing at times. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/52944158
