Sick DeathList which predicts stars to die updated after Prince Philip’s passing

A sick website which predicts which celebrities will die each year has updated its 2021 list in the wake of Prince Philip’s death.

The controversial DeathList site runs a list of 50 famous faces it forecasts will go during the year.

In the event any of them die, it marks them off its morbid register.

And it has already been refreshed following the announcement the Duke of Edinburgh has passed away, aged 99.

Philip was listed as the top person to die on the website’s twisted list of 2021 predictions.

Within hours of the news, it had highlighted his rank to indicate the prediction had come true.

Under the ‘latest news’ column, it noted he had died, adding: “Details to follow.”

The duke, whose description is listed on the foul website as ‘casual racist’, had been listed on the site nine times since 2013.

He was also top of the list last year as well.

This year's top 50 includes Mary Poppins star Dick Van Dyke, EastEnders legend June Brown, aka Dot Cotton, and Pogues singer and hellraiser Shane MacGowan.

So far, the website, which has the slogan “on today, gone tomorrow”, boasts that six out of 50 of its 2021 predictions have died.

These include fundraising hero Captain Sir Tom Moore, legendary Formula One commentator Murray Walker and boxer Leon Spinks.

Former US politician George Shultz and American radio host Rush Limbaugh complete the six, along with Prince Philip.

Last month, it marked the death of Murray Walker with crude F1 puns and said he had "crossed the final finish line to clock up another success for DeathList 2021".

The vile website brags that it had a record breaking year in 2020, when 20 of its guesses died.

Its list says candidates have to be famous enough that their death is reported by the UK media.

Only 25 can reappear from the previous year’s list, it adds.

The site’s owners, whose identities remains a closely guarded secret, claim the distasteful game was conceived in a bar at Warwick University in 1986 following the death of actor Cary Grant.

The staff directory is clouded with death puns, cartoon icons and users can talk about the upcoming predictions in forums.
