The next season of The Simpsons seems to be heating up, with rumours one of the staples of this cartoon sitcom tipped to be killed off.
TMZ caught up with Jennifer Tilly, who's buds with Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon, letting loose that it might be everyone's favourite convenience store attendant Apu Nahasapeemapetilon is to get the chop.
Although nothing is official until we actually see it, but according to Executive Producer Al Jean, Apu is 'definitely' a candidate - "the actor playing the character won an Emmy for playing that character," he said.
If it's not Apu, there's strong evidence to say it could be Sideshow Bob, Krusty or Grandpa Simpson.
We'll just sit back and wait for it all to unfold!
