Psychology experts reckon people whose first name begins with A outlive by 10 years those whose initial is D.
That is good news for Ant McPartlin, 34 – but bad news for his TV sidekick Declan Donnelly, also 34.

根据这一研究，寿命可能要受到影响的名人有62岁的David Bowie，34岁的David Beckham，42岁的Davina McCall和38岁的Dannii Minogue。
