That's a bit cold don't you think...:rolleyes: Sweepstake on someone's demise. I am no fan or hers nor any of her loathesome celeb fraternity but there's a line that has to respected. If anything let market forces decide and if they don't accept her then they'll boot her out anyway.

This kind of approach is just not called for. In fact when these waste of space, talentless gits get off the beaten track and too big for their shoes you should be calling for their punishment, that I could stomach and is justifiable.
But someone's passing is not cool.... Remember there are innocent family members that will suffer because of that. :=

Well, I'm always on the lookout for suggestions for Death Lotto, even though we can't change our selections until the jackpot goes off. Amy is an interesting left field selection, and would certainly score kudos as the youngest ever winner, but look at Keith Richards.

Naah, she could find god, give up the drugs, work with underprivileged kids and become a nun. Not good value. I'm happy with my selections of Ronnie Biggs and Billy Graham for the time being.

Death Lotto; the game you win when someone else's number comes up!

My choices at the beginning of the year were Sean Ryder, Keith Moon & Clint Eastwood.

The Clint choice was based purely on the usual tendency of the networks to show all their films as quickly as possible thereafter. ITV3 (?) have recently been showing all his old stuff, so I'm having a late substitution with Robert de Niro or Al Pacino. Obviously, Ryder was my banker, but he's still hanging in there, the drug addled lunatic!

I recently found out Keith Moon had pegged out years ago! (I think I meant Ronnie Wood, but I is stoopid...) :(

Not very good at this game, although I did predict Rod Hull a few years back.

As the organiser of our syndicate, I strongly suspect that at least one person is holding a selection who shuffled off this mortal coil some years ago, but I refuse to do a search, for I would then be forced to disclose that information.

Lesson 1. Do your own research.

Lesson 2. Never give a sucker an even break.

Come on Ronnie, you know you're stuffed, you had a good run, now I need the money. I'm going to leave you in this room with a loaded pistol. I know you, as an Englishman, can be trusted to do the right thing.............

We used to have a Death Lotto in our local pub, 1 entry with a prize of 100 when the unlucky celeb popped their clogs. Sadly, we were forced to give it up when Princess Di did........

Ronnie Wood's a pikey. You'll not see that gun again.

when Princess Di did........

Why? Nobody would have had her. Well, not many anyway. That day.

Or did you mean when Princess Di died?

Or Princess Di died and Dodi Died?

Dodi's father seemed to have a fair grasp of what was happening; I wonder if he had Di in Death Lotto?

Exactly......When Princess Di did. (Die)

It was August one year, I can't remember which, I just remember they had to call in a coroner from Disneyworld, who was heard singing as he prepared the bodies for transit.. "Zippidee Dodi, Zippidee Di..."

Coat.. door.. gone.:O

A BBC Local Radio presenter used to host a late-night programme which included a phone-in for listeners to state whether the announced celebrity was still around or 'brown bread'.
It was certainly popular and revealed quite a few misconceptions.

There used to be an amusing website called www.fantasydeathrow.com where one could bet on various outcomes for the prisoners. But it seems to have gone.

It would be a shame if the wee lassie kicked the bucket, she is very talented IMHO, obviously has a huge problem and needs serious help. Now as for that to$$er Pete Docherty, the words dancing and grave spring to mind.

My first reaction was - couldn't be a day too soon. Can't stand the girl.

But then I thought of all the money her record label would make from the huge outpouring of cash from her fans.

So now, I wish her a long, happy, drug free and quiet life away from the public stage.

I much prefer the Wynettes anyway.

Next years celebrity exit will, in fact be, His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. You heard it here 1st. Stand on me. 10-1 bar.

She's got a way to go to match Judee Sill

Armed robber, forger, prostitute (bisexual), junkie, she cleaned up and found Jesus, then relapsed back into drugs and suffered the inevitable end in 1979, age 35.

Voice like an angel, though
