Here is another Tweet saying the same thing.

It is still not confirmed about how true this information is until we confirm from a reliable source until then we see the strange news of Kay’s death as a Hoax.

Kay is a television presenter presenting roles included The Whole 19 Yards on ITV in 2010, Home For the Holidays, a Christmas entertainment show for Channel 4 in 2011 and an ITV mini-series called Let’s Get Gold in 2012. In 2015, he began hosting new ITV game show 1000 Heartbeats.

He also presented his own BBC Radio 1 show between 2004 and 2012. Kay presented his own show on Radio X from September 2015 until March 2017.

He then graduated in environmental science at Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University). He supports his hometown’s football club Bolton Wanderers.

Recently Reports Saying, Kay Died could be trailed back in 2008:

On September 16, 2008, Kay had to convince friends and family that he was alive and well after a change in Wikipedia entry to say he was dead.

According to him, a hacker changed Kay’s page to say that he drowned in a tragic accident in Greece, that his funeral will take place this Friday in Bolton.

Wikipedia is currently blocking new or unregistered users from editing the page due to cyber vandalism. However, the page has been edited to make reference to the incident.

Kay, best known for “Family Luck,” “Hit Me Baby Again,” and “Boys և Girls,” learned of the change after receiving calls from friends and family to check that he was fine after reading the post. :

The case reveals possible flaws in Wikipedia, allowing users to edit and update posts without the author’s permission.

Case is not the first British celebrity to be targeted by Wikipedia vandals after Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole became famous in the past.

In July, Google launched its own version of Wikipedia called Knol, which does not allow users to edit or enter posts without the author’s permission.

Another point of difference in Wikipedia, which contains 7 million collectively edited articles in 200 million languages, the new offer does not edit or endorse the information.

Knol readers can also notify Google if they find any content unobtrusive.

At the launch of Knol, Cedric Dupont, Knol’s product manager, said: “We strongly believe that authority, knowing who wrote what, helps readers trust the content.”

The name of the property represents the individual unit of knowledge, and the posts on the public site are called “knife”.

The site was first announced in early December 2007, when Google began conducting limited testing of the site.
