Prince has died aged 57 at his estate in Minnesota. Paramedics were called to his Paisley Park studio at 9.43 this morning. Carver County Sheriff's Department confirmed that there had been a fatality. A forensics team and a medical examiner are at the scene. Prince, 57, was hospitalized six days ago with flu symptoms. He was aboard a flight when he fell ill, forcing it to make an unscheduled landing in Illinois on Friday morning. The singer's plane diverted to Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois, to make the emergency landing. He had had been suffering from flu for a number of weeks and was believed to be recovering, but took a turn for the worse in the early hours of Friday. He was treated for three hours before being released. Initial reports on his condition painted a much graver pictures, with one source claiming at the time he was 'not doing well'. The Purple Rain hitmaker had performed at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta on last Thursday night - the second of two back to back sold out shows - and had seemed fine during the concert.

I doubt I've ever known such a sustained avalanche of celebs leaving us as we have known these last few months and these are just the ones we know about, there's far more that nobody has even mentioned and no doubt many more to come. Not only is it completely unexpected (death is like that) and such a hotch potch mish mash of both legends of music and screen but now also folk you've not heard from in years just suddenly popping off out of the blue from mystery illnesses.

Seriously, 2016 will be known as the year anyone born prior to the 90's lost all their celebrity hero's.

David Attenborough is 90 this month, when you hit max level you just keep going...

I think if Attenborough goes I'll be properly upset. So far most of the celebs that have passed on have had good lives ultimately entertaining but Attenborough is another matter entirely.

Sad indeed.

The number of deaths might look unusual, but it's not really. As humans we just like to see patterns where there often aren't any.
