Clive Merrison on Twitter has reported the death of actress Charlotte Cornwell, best known as Anna in 'Rock Follies', and also the sister of recently-deceased John Le Carre.

 

Really sad news - she was fab in 'Rock Follies'.

Her and Le Carre were half-siblings, weren't they?

 

 

Either way, for Rock Follies fans, v.sad.

Yeah, half-siblings. Famously was partially the inspiration for the lead in The Little Drummer Girl, which she auditioned for and, err, didn't get.

Every death listed on wiki today is under 80. The old ones are the pest... should get more points than younger people in DPs!

I’m genuinely surprised at the lack of aged 95+ picks on the DDP this year given that the new rules now strongly favour unique picks. There’s going to be a lot of older DDP misses coming up.

There are just so many elderly celebrities and, unless they're still relevant, it's very hard to find up-to-date health information on most of them.

Strongly favour? Hardly. It's one more point isn't it? Should be double points imho.

Seeing social media posts saying Peter Singh (aka The Panjabi Elvis) has died - he was 80 (according to some claims) and a mere 74 according to a John Peel fan site.

 

Known for some corkers - Rockin' with the Sikh, Turbans Over Memphis etc.
