    Dead Pop Stars

    You could add to the 'dead' list of Kate's associates the actor Gow Hunter (1960-2011), her co-star in the 'Hounds of Love' video.

    Phillip Schofield

    Didn't Celine Dion meet her future husband when she was only 12 or 13?

    38. Rolf Harris

    Death certificate shows he died on 10 May. Must have been one of the most-delayed deaths ever reported on this site, especially for one of the 50. Presumably cremation has taken place by now.

    On the website, but nothing at all on the BBC news so far. All seems to be about Madeleine or the Cardiff riots. Very strange.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    On a whim, having never heard it, I bought the record of the 1984 West Indies touring squad 'West Indians are back in town' when I saw it in Our Price that year. The B side, 'Skipper Lloyd (Have Mercy)' is credited to 'lead vocal: Thelston Payne.' Finally, a record of mine that isn't on Youtube. I'm not going to remind myself how it went, though. Edit: so it is, not the flip, though.

    Reality TV

    I dare say there's a thread for this already, but Jerry is also the latest of several QI panellists who've failed to make it to Series Z. Off the top of my head Victoria Wood, Linda Smith, John Sessions, Sean Lock, Carrie Fisher and Terry Wogan are others. Not sure if Sean Hughes ever appeared on the show.

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Quite a big one this - Faith Thomas, who played one Test for Australia in 1958. Doesn't sound much of a career, but one of just four players (two men, two women) of indigenous background to wear the 'baggy green.' Most recent was Scott Boland who destroyed England in Oz about 16 months ago. https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/faith-thomas-the-first-indigenous-woman-to-play-cricket-for-australia-dies-aged-90-1369437

    Royal Family

    So, Harry's coming, Meghan's staying at home. Charles walked her down the aisle a few years ago because her own father was unavailable; he gets a slap in the face in return. Harry, as ever, is torn between his wife and his family. Does anyone think these two will still be together five years from now?

    We are the world, roll call.

    I imagine that Geldof was invited in recognition of getting the whole thing started with Band Aid a few months earlier. Arguably Midge Ure should have been asked too, rather than Bono. Not mentioned above - but the Crowd's version of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' (with a distinctly C-list cast including the Nolans, Gerry Marsden, and, er, Black Lace) was recorded to raise money for victims and survivors of the Bradford FC fire in 1985 and went to no. 1. Probably better remembered than the Sun City record. For discussion and analysis of UK number ones, I heartily recommend this site - which has just got started again after a long hiatus. https://freakytrigger.co.uk/popular/

    Missing In Action

    Yeah I actually switched over to Sky after they did that. Expect that footage to be much replayed on BBC News this evening.

    Missing In Action

    Press conference at 5.30. Assuming it is her, I hope her poor sod of a partner wasn't dragged out to ID her. A body that's been in water for three weeks would be almost unrecognisable in any case. I imagine these days it's generally done through DNA/dental records which is why it takes a little longer. In any case, probably an end to this sad and strange story.

    Nope, Willie is clearly one of the Immortals. The Clive Dunn of WATW. Serious answer, I dunno, one of the women I suppose. I'll go with Cyndi.

    Willie Nelson, probably. I have to confess I rather like that record, cheesy though it undoubtedly is.

    34. General Pervez Musharraf

    Erm, 'assignation attempts?' What horrible task was he going to be assigned to?
