George Michael
Lionel Richie
Tina Turner
I shall be truly upset when George Michael goes. When he was admitted to hospital with pneumonia, I was quite fearful that he wouldn't make it.

Adding another name to the list - Sean Connery.

Photographer David Bailey is another one for me. One of the symbols of the swinging 60s

Shirley Bassey! She has been a part of my life since I was sixteen. We were born the same year!

Carla Laemmle and Lupita Tovar, as they are the only adult silent era actors still alive.

William Roache (Ken Barlow)

He's been in Corrie for nearly 53 years, so it would be VERY sad when he does go. It would most definately be the end of an era.

Victoria Wood and Julie Walters also.

Ian Lavender - the last member of the Dad's Army Walmington-On-Sea Platoon.

Also, when the last Dad's Army principal cast member dies, that will be the end of an era. At the moment, as far as I'm aware, along with Ian Lavender, Bill Pertwee (Warden Hodges) and the actors who played Mrs Fox and the Vicar are still alive.

David Hockney. He must be one of our last living proper artist legends... all we'll be left with is tossy and talentless chancers like Hirst, Emin and sundry other "instalationists" with their piles of bricks, soggy nappies and what-have-you.

I don't know if authors would be regarded has being showbiz, but for me I think I'd quite miss Stephen King, because I've been reading his books since the early 80s and have enjoyed most of them

Those two and John Conteh were just about the only black people on tv for a number of years.

Will it? Is/was there something special about black people on TV? I have no idea about what was said back then.
