    Joni Mitchell

    I very much doubt that she'll know or care, but Joni has the number one single in the UK this week … Ellie Goulding's faithful rendition of 'River' (from Blue) kept Mariah, Wham! and co at bay and I imagine it'll hang around after all the other seasonal evergreens have fallen off the chart next week. The first Mitchell song to go to the top since 'Woodstock' almost half a century ago. Also, way better than some shite about sausage rolls. I suppose Ladbaby has some sponsorship deal with Greggs by now.

    He gave that reporter a funny look when she asked "how is your father?" Maybe he thought she was propositioning him.

    Dennis Skinner

    The Beast of Bolsover lost his seat on Friday - I was listening as the result came in around 5 a.m. Dennis was too ill - after a recent hip operation - to attend. At 87, got to be a good choice for 2020 I'd have thought ...

    1. Prince Phillip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I thought he was last year, watching with the Queen - or was that two years ago? I know he's retired but I'd have thought this was the one thing he would have wanted to attend. There's an old soldier of 104 there today.

    Not even on the balcony then … it's almost as if he's already dead.

    28. Prunella Scales

    Timothy West will be best remembered as Edward VII, won't he? Looked like him several times last night, when he had the beard. I enjoyed seeing the two of them last night though didn't realise it was a one-off. Probably worth putting both on for next year. Francesca Anis was the young Lillie Langtry, I'm guessing.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    If they want another Jacques on the list next year, I guess he's the man. Plenty of punning possibilities too.

    Dead Pop Stars

    'My Best Friend's Girl' - no. 3, November 1978. 'Just What I Needed' - no. 17, February 1979 'Drive' - no. 5, October 1984 and returned to the Top 10 after Live Aid. Plus a couple of minor hits.'

    Jack Bond, Lancashire skipper of the early 70s, aged 87. Given that he helped mould the Red Rose county into a world-class one-day team the announcement of his death yesterday was particularly poignant. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/jul/14/jack-bond-obituary

    And self-medicating … what would Sandy have said? https://www.msn.com/en-gb/entertainment/celebrity/olivia-newton-john-says-shes-using-home-grown-cannabis-to-treat-pain-caused-by-breast-cancer/ar-BBUwFmI?ocid=spartanntp

    Gordon Banks

    Especially as he would have worn the number one jersey, back in the day .. when all the keepers wore green ? Last time I watched football, in other words. I guess DL 2019 was his final save. Fondly remembered from … those weird coins they used to give away at petrol stations.

    36. Shane MacGowan

    Extremely unlikely I would say, given that Her Maj would herself be over 130 by then … most of us who make that milestone would get one from William V, I suppose - if they're still doing them by then. I was going to say, surely not eligible? But he was born in Tunbridge Wells, of all places. Joint nationality, perhaps?

    Barbara Windsor

    Luvvies from 'Enders (and Scott) are going to be pounding the pavements of London for her … https://www.msn.com/en-gb/entertainment/celebrity/barbara-windsors-devoted-husband-scott-mitchell-joins-some-of-her-closest-friends-as-they-prepare-to-run-the-london-marathon-for-dementia-revolution/ar-BBRXg43?ocid=spartanntp

    The Dead of 2019

    Former actress and model Annalise Braakensiek - sounds like a sad one, this. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/model-and-ex-home-and-away-actress-found-dead-in-apartment/ar-BBRTQPq?ocid=spartandhp
