Sickly actor DUDLEY MOORE is topping the favourites on a shocking celebrity death gambling system on the internet.
The wacky web site allows computer users to vote on which celebrity they think is most likely to die next, gaining extra points if they nominate a star who is currently healthy and seemingly far from a sticky end. But long suffering celebrities such as Moore and BOB HOPE are favourites for the next obituaries.
BRIAN BARRY, associate professor of Psychology of the Rochester Institute in America says, "That is sick. It has turned death into a macabre game show, 'The Wheel of Ill-Fortune.'" (MB/WNWC/CPT)
