    I grew up with Cilla she will be sadly Missed and only 72 and never lost her accent

    Early footage of her makes me think she was agonisingly shy, but she certainly came out of her shell as she became more famous. I always though she had prominent teeth but never got the same teasing as Esther Ranzen did about her gnashers, and they were both very much in the limelight around the same era. She lived for her husband Bobby and sons. RIP Cilla. good all round entertainer with a bit of class.

    I never met her but she certainly was an entertainer. I wasn't that fond of her singing (too nasal) but doing her shows, she was good - very much of the time.

    But she was only 7 months younger than me and THAT is one huge wake-up call, as was loving my 67 year old younger sister last year. Such sad news for somebody who seemed so alive. Boy is Cliff going to miss her!

    I saw her live at Blackpool in the early 70's and she was a wonderful singer who made you feel she was performing just for you. Her records in the 60's were superb. I am only sorry that she hosted that horrid meat-market show called 'Blind Date' - RIP, lass.

    Pricilla White became Cilla Black,

    and a star was born. R.I.P.

  • I loved her records and have all of them gathering dust on vinyl, I wasn't keen on Surprise Surprise or Blind Date.

    RIP Cilla xx

    'anyone who had a heart' takes me back to a very well off pick up in a gay bar - i'd no idea at the time. he gave me a very interesting weekend and he wasn't gay. her record played incessantly on the radio i think. latterly i too saw her on blind date and she didn't seem to have changed at all. a true professional with the common touch.

    Cilla was a great lady and I grew up watching her programmes such as Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.

    I even liked some of her singles such as Anyone who had a Heart.

    Does anyone know what she died of?

    72 is no age these days.
