The 72 year old singer has died in her villa in Spain. It is thought that it is of natural causes.

RIP Cilla.

That's a real shame. As a child of the 1990s I remember her more for Blind Date, Surprise Surprise and The Moment of Truth than for her music. She made for great Saturday night telly.

She was one of the voices of my teenage years. Sure, I remember watching/hearing the Beatles, the Stones, Animals and all the other groups but the voices I remember are the girls - Dusty Springfield, Helen Shapiro, Cilla Black, etc. Cilla didn't have the strongest voice but she did have the most impact on showbiz, which is why Jonnowales also remembers her generations after my memories were formed but for different reasons. RIP chuck.

RIP Cilla.

If anyone is interested the three part drama starring Sheridan Smith playing Cilla in the early years is available on You Tube.
I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.

Cilla was an integral part of my young teenage Saturday night TV_binges.

Was very shocked and saddened to hear of her passing. While the 60s were not my day, so to speak, the era always fascinated me. Already, so many from that time have passed away and now we lose another one. RIP, Cilla.
