Then, who dropped out of 7 Up?

Peter drifted through university, and by age 28 he was an underpaid and seemingly uninspired school teacher. Peter dropped out of the series after 28 Up, following a tabloid press campaign against him after he criticised the government of Margaret Thatcher in his interview.

Subsequently, question is, how many of the 7 up children are still alive? That footage (complete with a polar bear) still features in the programme, which, under the benevolent gaze of director Michael Apted, has followed their lives with updates every seven years. Now, 56 years later, Seven Up! has become 63 Up, the age of its remaining 11 active cast members.

Also know, has anyone from 7up died?

Davis first featured in 7 Up as an East End schoolgirl alongside her friends Lynn Johnson and Jackie Bassett. Johnson died in 2013. All of the other cast members are still alive, although some have dropped out of the project as years have gone by.

Will there be a 70 up?

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but some viewers were worried that the end of 63 Up signalled the show was over. As the show returns every seven years, that means the next instalment wouldn't be on our screens til 2026!

What happened to Neil on 7up?

Neil Hughes
In 1964 he was an enchanting Liverpool boy who wanted to be an astronaut. Tragically, in 28 Up Neil was found homeless and in a bad mental state. Yet he surprised viewers when he reappeared as a Liberal Democrat councillor in Hackney in 42 Up.
