A sad day today with a few familiar celebrity faces passing away overnight.
US actor Luke Perry has died after suffering a massive stroke at his Los Angeles home, he was 52.
He found fame in the role as Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills, 90210, which was set around a group of students living in the upscale southern California city. And more recently appeared in Riverdale.
It is with deepest shock and sadness that we can confirm the death of our brother and best friend Keith Flint. A true pioneer, innovator and legend. He will be forever missed.— The Prodigy (@the_prodigy) March 4, 2019

Lead singer of The Prodigy Keith Flint has also sadly passed away.
He was found dead at his home in Dunmow, about 60 kilometres north-east of London.
Flint became one of the best-known faces of 1990s British electronic music, performing apparently random dance moves and often with eccentric hair cuts.
The band described Flint as a "true pioneer, innovator and legend"
Closer to home, Australian country singer Kate Cook has died.
This is the Kate Cook I remember and loved. We were only just talking about organising a ten year Idol reunion this year... you were such a beautiful person inside & out. Absolutely gutted but hope you’re up there with your Mum now 💔😪 pic.twitter.com/CPvjz0khIK— CASEY BARNES (@Casey_Barnes) March 4, 2019
The 36-year-old's body was found in bushland near her Lowood, Queensland, home on Monday morning by police, after her friends became concerned for her whereabouts on Sunday evening.
Her death is not being treated as suspicious at this stage.
Kate Cook gained national attention in 2009 after appearing on Australian Idol.
