DDP 2021: List of the Lost

The following ‘celebrities’ have died this year, but haven’t got the required UK obituary as far as we can see, so no points have been awarded as yet.

Please let us know if you spot an obit for one of these people (or even just a passing mention of their death) in a British national news source as accepted below.


(As of 1/1/2018, the death announcements section of broadsheet websites, which members of the general public can pay for listings, are excluded)


…and from these news sites:
The notice of death must be in written English. Video links are only accepted if the strapline mentions the celeb’s passing.
