A sick website predicting the deaths of celebrities has released its list for 2023, featuring the likes of Yoko Ono, Tina Turner and paedophile Rolf Harris.
Every year deathlist.net produces a list of 50 famous faces set to meet their end over the coming year.
Last year the website accurately predicted 14 deaths, including the passings of Queen Elizabeth II and celebrated footballer Pele in September and December respectively.

This year actor Dick van Dyke, 98, is in the number one spot – the same spot he occupied last year – making this the eighth time he has featured on the ill-fated list.
He is followed closely by diplomat Henry Kissinger and The Price is Right presenter Bob Barker, both 100 and also veteran listees.
There are also some unfortunate newcomers to the twisted list, including actor Robert Wagner, radio presenter Pete Murray, and Rolf Harris, a former TV personality and entertainer who was convicted of sexually assaulting four teenage girls in 2014.

Much-loved faces in the music business, including Tina Turner, Duran Duran's Andy Taylor and John Lennon's wife Yoko Ono also appear, as well as Shane MacGowan from the Pogues, who is in the midst of a public health battle.
Meanwhile fellow legends including footballer Sir Bobby Charlton, who has been diagnosed with dementia, and journalist Michael Parkinson.
As stated on their website, the rules of the DeathList are: "Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is confidently expected to be reported by the UK media.
"Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die imminently and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list."
And while the vile list managed to accurately guess 14 deaths last year, its most successful year to date was three years ago in 2020, when it correctly predicted 20 out of 50 celebrities' demises.
The site's owners have never revealed their identities, but they claim the idea for the sickening site was concocted in a bar at Warwick University in 1986 following the death of actor Cary Grant.
The website and its creators have understandably come under fire, not just for the grim nature of the game, but for the liberal use of puns, jokes and insults.
When the website accurately predicted the Queen's tragic death last year it read "From Sceptre to Spectre", referencing the staff held by a ruling monarch.
A year earlier the list referred to her late husband, Prince Philip, as a "casual racist" in the "Occupation" column.
