    The Chequered Flag

    I don't think she'll make DDP fame requirements, but Jacqueline Beltoise, widow of Jean-Pierre and sister of Francois Cevert, is, according to this obituary of Jabouille, in the same hospital/clinic that Jabouille was. https://www.autonewsinfo.com/2023/02/02/deces-de-jean-pierre-jabouille-412407.html It mentions Jacques Laffite, the third poorly driver mentioned by Peter Windsor in the tweet (Tambay and Jabouille being the now deceased duo) visited Jabouille last night so he's still active (of sorts).

    The Chequered Flag

    Worth mentioning JPJ was a DDP pick and the Daily Mirror has already provided a QO https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/formula-1/breaking-jean-pierre-jabouille-dead-29119111

    Ozzy Osbourne

    Too weak to perform, retires from touring. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-64481933 But reading between the lines, retirement will probably help his health somewhat. I don't think he's popping his clogs just yet.

    Only Famous For Being Ill And Dying

    Fornasier ended up getting QO's from The Mirror, Yahoo and the Daily Mail https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11690577/amp/Sydney-writer-Natalie-Fornasier-dies-battle-melanoma.html Reason I say this is not to bitch about disqualification but that it's clear the influencer/blogger type is virtually a shoe-in for obits, especially if young. Unfortunately for DDP purposes, she wasn't as influential as required.

    Pneumonia apparently.

    26. Prunella Scales

    Not quite sure why I can't embed tweets like I used to, but there's an up to date photo of Prunella in Sam West's tweet. She looks ok. Ma in Millbank Pizza Express. New hat, decorated by grandchildren

    More recently she was the narrator for the BBC's excellent Talking Pictures programme.

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    If you allow The Stage, can you allow Autosport so I can get 20 hits, ta

    FIFA World Cup Players

    I see that the article has Munoz alive, but it does 100 per cent confirm all the Paraguayans are dead. In World Cup terms, this is actually quite a seismic death. Just one survivor of the 1950 World Cup, albeit 73 years on. How fitting it should be the first man to play in 5 World Cups and not some Bolivian centre half who played in one game.

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    Amazing work, thank you all. I almost hate to say it, but @Banana and @Death Impends Just to say that I picked the wildlife Simon Cowell, not the X factor one. Pleasantly surprised to get two uniques although fully admit I'm chancing it a bit with Tongo's QO chances. But you've got to take risks sometimes.. Also learnt from last year and have 14 drop 40. Delighted Winnie Ewing wasn't drop 40 which made the decision to drop her a wise tactical move. PS let me know if I can help in any form

    Derby Dead Pool 2023

    Ha! That reminds me when someone picked me for the 2009 DDP, presumably annoyed at how I ran 2008. Irony is that back then I would be disqualified, nowadays I should pass the fame test.

    Not so, the pings were delayed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-64355191.amp

    Predict The Drop 40

    I reckon Frank McGarvey might've been a drop 40 pick. Possibly the Thai princess.
