Well I never, it's back, and now in its new home. After being narrowly outbid for the rights, Channel 4 were forced to settle for nicking Bake Off from the So-Called BBC instead, and it is Dosbods that has claimed the ultimate prize.

The object of the game remains unchanged and the rules will be familiar to many:

Pick 2 celebs who believe will die in 2018. One must be in the Senior category aged 75 or older on January 1st 2108, while the other must be a Junior, aged under 75. The poster whose chosen celeb dies first in each category wins. This year also sees the introduction of a 3rd optional pick: Celebrity Animal.

The following by laws shall apply:

  • Closing date for your choices is the stroke of New Year's Day, midnight 31st December. No entries will be accepted after then.
  • Each celebrity may only be picked once. Should a poster accidentally forget to read all the picks from the start of the thread and choose someone who has already been nominated, they have until the closing date to pick another one.
  • Simply being famous for being old is not reason enough to be classed as a celebrity. In the event of any disputes over whether someone is, or is not, a celebrity, the Court of Dosbods Groupthink shall rule.
  • If anyone's chosen celebrity should die before the end of 2017, the poster may pick a replacement, but the closing date of New Year's Eve still stands.
  • You may not kill celebrities yourself. Not even the annoying ones. Oh that's pretty much all of them. You may not kill celebrities yourself.

The competition opens............ NOW

Me:

Senior - Bernie Sanders

Junior - Paul Hollywood

Animal - Tian Tian the panda at Edinburgh Zoo

I’ll enter my last years celebs because I still think they’re good bets.

Over 75 Micheal Caine

Under 75 Joni Mitchell 

Animal - Me. 

I was about to disallow Joni Mitchell from the junior competition but you're right - 74. Let's see if she comes up trumps for you and ends 2018 only looking at clouds from one side.

I love how everyone jumps in with their answers. I have to ponder, and savour, the possibilities during the month.

Good to see Kirk there again - what a trouper. The word on the Hollywood gossip sites is that he is not at all well. Doris Day - one of my childhood loves and perhaps I will share my boring DD story with you lot one day - is in the running again. I hope she does not win or even make the runners up.

Ditto for Dick Van Dyke or, as we now live in a libtard world of gender and language censorship, Van. (He's not my entry btw.).

Only so many to go round, you don't want to be waiting too long otherwise somebody swoops in.

Well, I hesitated and two of my thoughts - Doris Day and Justin Bieber (Never imagined them to be mentioned in the same sentence.) - were snapped up.

      Interesting little piece, which raises the question is London becoming too dangerous a place for its itinerant celebrities.
      https://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/news/west-london-news/liz-hurley-nephew-stabbed-battersea-14392789
      The 21-year-old nephew of actress Elizabeth Hurley was stabbed multiple times in a “brutal attack” in Ascalon Street, Battersea, London.
      Liz Hurley tweeted “My 21-year-old nephew was repeatedly stabbed in a brutal attack in London on Thursday'
      "They are believed to have been attacked by a group of males who got out of a vehicle and assaulted them before fleeing the scene."
      No arrests have been made.

      This is a good match for Jamie's Pukka restaurant collapse thread but deserves its own.
      I very much enjoyed Channel 4's The Hotel (some episodes still available on Youtube) as it followed the chaotic Mismanagement of Mark Jenkins of his Grosevnor Hotel in Torquay, his generally useless staff who spent most of their time playing up to the camera rather than working (Christian being the prime example).  This wasn't schadenfreude, for all the faults it genuinely seemed a nice place to be.
      Anyway, encouraged by the camera Mark and co. had one whacky idea after another to "save the Grosevnor" until eventually time ran out and he had to concede defeat and sell it to someone who gave the impression of being a hard headed financial expert - own helicopter, accountant, specialised in buying hotels cheap.
      But TV turned his head; having been presented as a financial success he thought he couldn't lose and, disliking the low rent image of the Grosvenor, proceeded to throw vast amounts of money at it to turn it into a luxury venue, hooked up with a celebrity chef (that's always a good idea...) and actually renamed it after him: the John Burton-Race    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Burton-Race
      (JBR himself having gone bankrupt in 2009)
      Spin forward a few years and:
      His hotel group is in administration and his hotels up for sale because, as he says himself, he spent too much money on The Grosvenor.
      Looks like that brief TV appearance at the end of Series 3 turned his head.
       
       
      Several very good hotels up for sale as a consequence:

      I thought it might be an idea for people to put down their predictions for 2018. 
      A bit like the celebrity death sweepstake but no prediction is off limits. 
      From the sublime to the bloody ridiculous, all contributions welcome. Anything from the ecomony to armageddon.
      Mine is that the Beckhams will finally call time on their sham of a marriage. I have no foundation for this other than her miserable face. 
      Any others?
