Daniella Westbrook hasn't looked good for the past 20 years and that was when she claimed she was clean.

Yeah she hasn`t looked good since that infamous incident with her nose she looks worse in these latest photos definitely a lot gaunter than when Dame Babs died last year.

 

Brian looks better but still an awful lot worse than your average 46 year old and unrecognizable from when he was in Im a celeb or when he ran himself over after eating too many baked potatoes.It is a shame he didn`t do an online singalong with Matt Lucas when he was getting famous people to sing the baked potato song with him.

Brian Harvey actually sounds rather more articulate and quicker-thinking than he did when he was younger, I remember hearing an interview where he was defending the taking of Ecstasy and burbling on about "if it's a safe pill, you can take it."

For the benefit of our younger viewers - you're looking at two pictures of the same woman and she's still only 47.

"Seems" like Brian's having a breakdown? He's been a bit, umm, odd for a while - conspiracy stuff, all the stuff Danniella Westbrook is calling him out over.

He's okay, though (because highly obitable) - I know his career took a back seat a while ago because his wife died.

True for today. But at 76, any rocker is an outlier.  Jeff Beck, anyone?

Yeah I would say Pele is more likely to go before Zagallo, Pele doesn’t look in great shape to me think he will be brown bread within the next 2 or 3 years

I do this every year (for the past eight years)

 

Listed below are 20 old people who have not made an appearance in the DDP in the past eight years. The age group is narrow 78-82 so might be more use of where will we be in five years time but some might be useful for theme teams. 

 

When cross referencing the entire DDP rosta against my reserve list of 1100 names there is always the possibility of errors creeping in especially where people are listed in strange ways (normally by title)

Co-incidentally was just Googling Ian - Mott the Hoople - Hunter (b. 3 June 1939) definitely in that age territory and not selected for DDP action this year; dunno if he was listed in the past

 

He hasn't blogged on his own site since the summer of 2018

Coincidentally, I was watching this 'tube vid from a couple of years ago (29 March 2019), featuring Hunter with Rod Argent, Colin Blunstone, Susannah Hoffs & Brian May performing with Def Leppard (their induction to the Rock & Roll Hof). Looking at that  you'd say he's got years left in him, but as you trightly say he's now in that age bracket where things can go wrong pretty rapidly.

So, I've seen Hunter and Blundstone up close at Ramblin' Man over the last few years

 

Hunter (79 at that point) looked in amazing shape considering

 

Blundstone might have done himself a favour to ditch the hair dye - as The Zombies took to the prog stage in bright afternoon sun there was brief speculation amongst the randoms in the crowd as to what gender Blundstone was!

Larry Storch, US actor and comedian. OK, not a marquee name but as soon as you see him, it's 'oh yeah him'. Made his name back in the sixties in 'F Troop' and numerous television appearances, 'Columbo' , 'The Persuaders'. Recently updated his Facebook page with a pic of him getting his second jab for Covid-19, so he's still cracking on at 98 years old...

I know of a Frank Field (born 1923) who is a US TV weatherman. He was on my radar but I doubt he gets a UK obit, so I've never played him here.

Kenneth Kaunda. DL has gotten hits from a lot of old African 60s/70s/80s despots and presidents (Hastings Banda and Mobutu Sese Seko in 1997, Idi Amin in 2003, PW Botha in 2006, Ian Smith in 2007, Robert Mugabe in 2019, Daniel arap Moi and Hosni Mubarak in 2020) so Kaunda, who doesn't look that healthy, could be a new addition to the collection.

 

Maybe F.W. de Klerk/Sam Nujoma/Paul Biya/Teodoro Mbasogo/Denis Sassou Nguesso/Jose Eduardo dos Santos/Ali Hassan Mwinyi if any of these get any health issues

Based on how she looks at the moment - Nikki Graham from BBUK.

 

And if things keep going on the way they do - then add Eugenia Cooney. She is a Youtuber who is anorexic but "ignores the haters". She has a toxic family and her mother encourages her behaviour. She had a forced admission to a facility January last year (not done by her parents btw) and things looked good but she has fallen back to her old behaviours including body checking and dressing like an anime character.

Don't look if you are triggered by eating disorders or are in recovery yourself.

If I see April in the DL Cup Eugenia might just make the squad - though - tbh - it'd be better all round if someone called the US equivalent of social services on her family

Idk what you guys see in Eugenia Cooney. She’s been like this for at least a decade and we’ll probably know beforehand if it gets any worse.

Eugenia Cooney livestreams for hours, multiple days a week on Twitch so I don’t think it’s necessary to have constant updates on her unless her social media presence goes quiet. Just go on Twitch and 9 out of 10 times you’ll have live footage of her.
