To say that 2016 has been a bleak year would be an understatement.
The world has lost true icons such David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood, Prince, Muhammad Ali, Leonard Cohen… the list goes on. Let’s just say it’s been a really shitty year.
But while most of us can’t wait to see the back of the year, there’s a pretty disturbing website that predicts which celebrity will die next. Weird, I know.
Every year The Deathlist releases a list of 50 celebrities who they think will die in that year, and they have a pretty decent track record. This year, they’ve managed to predict the death of 10 celebrities, which is four less than the 14 they predicted last year.
So far this year The Deathlist has predicted the deaths of Fidel Castro, Muhammad Ali, Martin Crowe, João Havelange, Bhumibol Adulyadej, Abe Vigoda, Nancy Reagan, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Cliff Michelmore and Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Quite worryingly, this year’s list also contains national treasures Bruce Forsyth and Paul Gascoigne and there are still a few days left in the year. Let’s just end 2016 a bit early, okay?
I don’t even want to see the 2017 list.
