    Cilla Black dies aged 72.

    I was shocked an saddened to read of the death of Cilla as she was an icon of mine in my youth.

    The world will be a much lesser place without her.

    Read what I saw in The Telegraph here: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/11778819/Cilla-Black-dies-aged-72.html

    Hi there Angie.

    Yes both my wife and myself were terribly shocked by this news as we were the same age as Cilla was and we remember with love all of the shows and songs that she used to do.

    She was unashamedly from working stock and her easy temperament was accepted by all.

    Someone rightly said on the news that if Brucie was the king of light entertainment, Cilla was the queen.

    I will be expecting to see a lot of well-known faces at her funeral.

    Sadly missed ! Sad

    UPDATE....

    Was Cilla's death suicide ?

    It was reported that Cilla had said to a friend that "she was tired of it all and just wanted to be back with her beloved Bobby again".

    While the official stance is that she died of natural causes, it is curious that she died so quickly, ( the next day ), after having been photographed in a selfie with a fan while smiling and looking happy.



    Something more to come from here I think.

    There was more about this in the news yesterday Papa.

    It seems that Cilla fell, hit her head, and suffered a stroke.

    It was also said that if she had not had to wait four hours for help she may have lived.

    Thanks for the update Angie as I was obviously wrong to listen to the rumours concerning Cilla's death.

    That aside, I bet that that will be one of the biggest entertainment sector funerals that we will have seen for a while, because simply everybody loved her.
