"Why are so many celebrities dying in 2016?"

The Telegraph offers six theories and actually chooses a couple.

It certainly seems the case. The death of the musician Prince, at the age of 57, just a day after Victoria Wood died from cancer, aged 62, has shocked their millions of fans. But it also appears to prove that 2016 is cursed in some way.  The two entertainers are the latest in a long line of celebrities to die in 2016, following Ronnie Corbett, Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Sir Terry Wogan, Harper Lee,David Gest, Garry Shandling, Johan Cruyff among others.
