The classic cover of Sergent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

An artist has given one of The Beatles most famous album covers an update and turned into a viral sensation at the same time.

Chris Baker decided to honour some of the performers we have lost this year by putting their faces on the cover of the album and turning it into a quiz.

He said it started out as just a bit of fun and a nice way to remember the singers and actors. He later decided to make it into quiz for anyone who wanted to get a bit of fun out of it.

The new version of the cover features some of the biggest names we lost this year, including Muhammed Ali, Gene Wilder, Prince and Victoria Wood.

Cheekily, it also spells out Brexit in flowers at the feet of where the fab four used to stand, a reference to Britain voting to leave the EU in June.

Chirs uploaded the photo to Twitter saying: “Right. Can everyone stop dying now please? #2016”. A short time later he added a follow-up message, saying: “Started this. Then regretted it about halfway through. A bit like 2016 really…”.

He later added a second version of the design, featuring numbered silhouettes and added: “If anyone is planning an end of year quiz or anything… #2016.”
