    Disc Jockeys

    I would have had Bruno Brookes down as a rank outsider with the likes of Alan Freeman and Jimmy Savile about, but you never know. Which long-in-the-tooth Radio 1 DJ would be your favourite to star on this site?
  2. Chrysogonus Waddell Any relation to Sid?

    To save the main thread from getting clogged up, I thought I'd start a thread for all those (mostly silly) rumours like the recent "Jeff Goldblum falls off a cliff in New Zealand" one. Latest is Rick Astley found dead in Berlin Hotel room Fer chrissake! They'll be claiming Michael Jackson's dead next!
  4. Homeless "Mr Butch" of Boston, has died in a scooter accident, aged 56: http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/83095.html No, I'd not heard of him either, but I was interested to see that he is a "YouTube" celebrity and has a Wiki entry!: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_quer...p;search=Search http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Butch
  5. Whitney Houston hits bus You're gonna have to try harder than that, Whitney! Ranks alongside the "Prince Charles cuts lip whilst shaving" type of headline!

    Tiswas favourites to reunite for TV "Original host Chris Tarrant will come back as its presenter for the 90 minute special mixing nostalgic clips with new sketches, according to the Sun. Members of the 1970s line-up will also return, including Sally James, Lenny Henry and Bob Carolgees with Spit The Dog" No mention of John Gorman (now 70) or Frank Carson. David Rappaport is unavailable for comment...

    Peter Andre

    I think it may be time we gave him his own thread: Andre 'too ill to notice wife' http://uk.news.yahoo.com/wenn/20070501/ten...fe-c60bd6d.html Mods: Please merge the stuff from the "Dead" thread if you feel necessary!

  11. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/ap/20070604/img/p...d6a1ee5710.html Go on, you know you want to... Personally, I reckon it looks like something a mad Spaniard might come up with!

    Ho! Ho! Ho! Calcutta

    Paris Hilton to play Mother Theresa ... well at least that's what Mr. Rajeevnath would like! Isn't it a bit late for April Fools now? Anyone got any other suggestions for who they would like to play a particular Death List star? What do you think was the biggest mis-match where actors were playing dead "celebs"?

    Only Fools And Horses

    That would be the actor whom my family will always call Charlie, because he played a character called Charlie in Brookside. I dunno his real name though. He was also a psychiatrist in an episode of 'Nightingales', in which it was revealed that "Ding Dong" Bell (played by David Threlfall) was a serial horse rapist... Philip McGough The OFAH character was Arnie in the episode "Chain Gang" - the one with the gold chains and bogus ambulances.

    Political Frailty

    Confirmed by BBC also Wikipedia states "At the time of his death, he was the oldest living former President of Cyprus" - not too many candidates for that title, I suspect. Not few enough to have a shining new oldest living former President of Cyprus, I guess. BTW, 94 ain't bad for a fat bloke. regards, Hein Clerides is the one on the right (if you ignore the chap in the blue Frank Spencer hat). The "fat bloke" you refer to is on the left and is Rauf Denktash who left us early last year, but he did reach 87, so not bad indeed!

    Alex Higgins (And Snooker)

    I think that leaves just Ray Reardon and Rex Williams still alive from the original eight Pot Black players. The others were Gary Owen, John Pulman, Fred Davis, Kingsley Kennerley and John Spencer.

    Gangster, Gangster

    I read that earlier but I only just realised this on looking at it the 2nd time round - scroll down and look at the picture that supposed to be a graffiti of Chopper Read....... that's actually Merv Hughes the Australian cricket legend....... haha...... stupid. Dead (aplologies if posted elsewhere) - I now see it was (in the "Hooroo, Mate" thread, but only 1 minute before this!)
