The DeathList 2021

0 / 50 dead

2020 holds the current record of 20 deaths

Welcome to DeathList 2021. This is a list of 50 celebrities chosen by the DeathList committee, before the start of the year, for their likelihood to die in 2021. A quick recap of DeathList’s rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is confidently expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die imminently and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list. Buoyed by the global pandemic, DeathList 2020 smashed the previous record with 20 deaths, although only two of them directly related to Covid-19. With quite a few new selections joining the list this year, can DeathList 2021 match the performance of its record-breaking predecessor?
