Death List 2017
Below you will find Death List 2017, a list of celebrities selected by an expert committee for their likelihood to die during 2017. There are a few rules to Death List summarized as follows:
Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media;
Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list.
2016 was billed as the year of the celebrity death by some and, although DeathList 2016 started strongly, it hit a very lean period from June to November and ended with a final score of 12, two below the all time record of 14.
Has the big celebrity clear-out of 2016 made the task more challenging for 2017 or will the rate of celebrity deaths continue apace?
