    Curse Of The Eurovision

    Already posted in the Italian thread, but for completeness, Toto Cutugno, winner in 1990 and co-host in 1991, dead at 80: https://www.ansa.it/english/news/lifestyle/arts/2023/08/22/singer-songwriter-toto-cutugno-dies-at-80_a15833a2-50da-4a2d-8b57-8cf7c6c8432c.html

    Death, Italian Style

    Correction, he won Eurovision in 1990 with the song 'Insieme: 1992'. Was a co-host of the following year's contest in Rome, a notoriously shambolic production.

    British Character Actors

    Sad about this one. Mrs Warboys was a brilliant character. First of the main cast to go too.

    Brother of the considerably more famous Peri, Roz in Frasier.

    Well enough to be attending Beyoncé concerts with her kids. Tbh I think she looks a lot better than she did before the trip to hospital.

    At least, unlike Rishi, he knows that you can simultaneously travel more sustainably and do work.

    If 'Go woke, go broke' were true, surely the Torygraph would be in rude health?

    Hollywood Possibilities

    Went with the Wikipedia articles cast lists and completely forgot about her. Perhaps that shows my aversion to child actors, but she was admittedly pretty good.

    Hollywood Possibilities

    With the death of Jane Birkin, the list of survivors from the classic all-star Poirot films shrinks further. Those left now are: Murder on the Orient Express (1974) Dame Vanessa Redgrave (1937 - ) Michael York (1942 - ) Jacqueline Bisset (1944 - ) Death on the Nile (1978) Dame Maggie Smith (1934 - ) Mia Farrow (1945 - ) Lois Chiles (1947 - ) Olivia Hussey (1951 - ) Evil Under the Sun (1982) Dame Maggie Smith (1934 - ) Emily Hone (1966 - ) There was considerable overlap between the casts, with Birkin in both Death on the Nile and Evil Under the Sun. Funny that the most recent is the one closest to a wipeout. Edit: forgot Emily Hone.

    Political Frailty

    No surprise, in his official photo from 2017 on his Wiki article he looks dreadful.

    Jane Birkin

    Aww, sad about this one. As mentioned above, fantastic in Evil Under the Sun.

    Surely that Stephen Nolan guy is the most overpaid relative to how many people actually see or hear them? I'd never even heard of him until one of these earnings lists got published, and he's somehow deemed to be on the same level as Huw Edwards, Fiona Bruce, etc.?

    Literally just saw this second one. Not workplace harassment if they met via Grindr/Tinder/whatever, rather than at the BBC. Honestly, a closeted guy getting shirty with some twink threatening to out them is a pretty low bar for El Scandalo.
