Latest News: Nice little urn-er

Picture of George Cole 6th Aug 2015

British Actor, George Cole, has become the next candidate to contribute to DeathList 2015’s hot streak. Cole was best known as Arthur Daley in the TV show Minder, but had an extensive career in British film prior to landing the used car dealer role in 1979. Minder ran for 15 years and made Arthur Daley a household name, introducing phrases such as “nice little earner” and “‘er indoors” into common usage. Cole was only making his second appearance on DeathList, his first being way back in 1989. This year he was at number 31. His passing marks the tenth success of the year.


The DeathList 2015

The DeathList committee has once again called upon numerous sources of information to compile its list of 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die in 2015. A quick recap on the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous year’s list. DeathList 2014 ended with a disappointing total of 10 successes so we will be looking for DeathList 2015 to show some better form.
