David Bowie is reported to have exploded at a party in Zurich.
Bowie is the fourth celebrity this year to explode and it is causing concern amongst musicians and actors alike.
We reported in May the demise of Luther Vandross, David Soul and aging rock star Joe Dolce'
Experts are at a loss to explain the celebrity attacking virus that causes the blasts and people are being advised not to approach celebrities after 18 autograph hunters were injured when Joe Dolce' exploded.
Professor Ludwig Ausanpepper said today "Ve are trying to isolate zee boog vich cauzes zee hotshots to go boooom! Ve vud ask for calm during zeeze dificult times."
Bowie is believed to have been worried about detonating and went to great lengths in an attempt not to be a centrepiece in a pyrotechnic display.
The explosion has sent shock waves through the world with Simon Cowell leading the tributes "David was a wonderful person and it is tragic that he has been a victim. I'm sure he would not be too disappointed with the nature of his demise. A showman til' the end."
In an attempt to thwart the virus, some celebrities are trying to drop their celebrity status by taking mundane jobs.
Phil Collins is bog cleaning in Hackney and Colleen Nolan is glass collecting in The Swinging Lizard, a gay bar in Bolton.
Doctors have announced that Bowie is expected to make a full recovery. "Since most of his bits were put on ice straight away, we can sew him all up nice again."
