    41. Pelé

    I don't know, the economy could really do with a boost from all the parties that will happen to celebrate his demise.

    True, at least any treatment costs will be easy to cover as the gravy train of Christmas song royalties comes in.

    50. Shane MacGowan

    If he goes this month does that mean "Fairytale of New York" will be being played on repeat on every radio station?

    Presumably any announcement will aim to avoid an unsociable hour in Brazil time (3 hours behind the UK), so if he does go today, we may not know until tomorrow unless it happens before midnight UK time.

    Cricket is most prominent in countries that are former British colonies at the height of the British Empire, and what's now Guyana is the only part of South America that is a full ICC member, as part of the West Indies' team. If Pele goes in the next few days there could be another example like Diana + Mother Teresa or JFK + CS Lewis, where one death overshadows the other, in this case Christine McVie.

    Which would be unprecedented/unconstitutional to say the least, but not surprising given recent politics.

    Could be 4 by-elections courtesy of Johnson's resignation honours list:

    Jair Bolsonaro

    Maybe he's on the phone to Trump asking how to rally a mob to storm Brazil's National Congress building.

    Liz Truss

    I'm a Celeb is for "has-beens", not "never-beens". That said she could get some advice from Dorries who of course caused a stir by going on it about 10 years ago, which was her only experience for Culture Secretary.

    George Alagiah

    Unfortunately I think if he makes 2023 he'll be a strong contender for the list. By coincidence he's around the same age as former colleague and fellow cancer sufferer Bill Turnbull.

    David Dimbleby

    David Dimbleby was recently interviewed on GMB about his new book and Liz Truss' time as PM so far, and I can't help but think he's looking more frail since he left Question Time 4 years ago:

    Liz Truss

    Sounds like when DeathList selection would be considered she might not be famous enough to meet the criteria.
