Dead Pool 2016 Review

2016 is over and we now have a winner! Congratulations to Laura, she scored a whopping 654 points and wins the coveted title of Angel of Death 2016! A small prize will be winging its way to you once it arrives from Satan, or the extremely talented Sarai as we know her!!

So, let’s have a look at 2016; it does seem that there have been a lot of celebrity deaths, but when you look back to 2015, there were just as many notable demises and just as many recognisable faces, although this last week in December was a tad brutal.

2017 might see as many again, as what seems to be the culprit is that it’s much easier to become a celebrity nowadays.

So lets have a look at some of the celebrities we lost during 2016…
