Re: Cilla Black Dies

Just was on phone to a friend who mentioned it. Very saddened to hear it.
A great entertainer and she seemed genuine in all she did and said.
RIP

I met her once when she came to my club to film a segment for one of her TV shows. A very friendly person. She never forgot her Liverpudlian background despite her fame.

I laughed out loud years ago when I was younger when I heard her name was Cilla White yet millions tuned in to watch Cilla Black. Rest In Peace : gone but never forgotten

Re: Cilla Black Dies

from some accounts she was a pretty horrendous person off camera.
if you frequent the cabin crew forums her name is always mentioned as one that is talked about badly.
a death is a death at the end of the day and hers is no different to anyone else's.
she was certainly not a "national treasure" as is being trotted out on all the press and the usual suspects that stick their head up when it suits them.

Her real name was actually Priscilla White (Priscilla Marie Veronica White in full). Her first manager, Brian Epstein, suggested a name change and she became Cilla Black.

RIP Cilla.. one of TVs finest ever A listers.
I was very sad to hear the news today, very shocked too. She was absolutely incredible and one of the real old skool celebs that never got into any sort of controversy.
I will miss her but I must say all the signs of her giving up were there.. Surprise Surprise being handed over to a new host, that show all about her where her story was told and she sung a song at the end...  it all seemed like she was just handing away everything she meant to people and everything she had worked for. It's as if she'd given up and I wondered at the time how long she'd got left.
I shall miss her a lot.
RIP Cilla Black, you will be missed.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Cilla Black Dies

Definitely one of the greats.
Watched her recently on Room 101 and her pet hate was jumped up people saying " Do you know who I am?
She said she said she was Mrs Willis when she phoned to book restaurant etc - never said Cilla Black.
Cause of death to be confirmed but, to me, 72 is far too young.

strange, because just about every cabin crew member comment i've seen says that she uses that line almost every time.
there's a cabin crew discussion form and her name is pretty much mud on there.
but as they say, don't speak ill of the dead (something the newspapers like to go against Cheesy )

Looking at one of the forums there are a very small number of negative comments but on the same forum there are also positive ones as well. The time I met her she was very pleasant to everyone she met.
