The Life of the incredible Cilla Black is brought to ITV our thoughts

A three part drama about one of our favourite household names, Cilla Black, has been  eagerly anticipated, Jane Tyner gives her recap.

It stars Sheridan Smith as a young Cilla, life in the sixties and her relationships with the likes of Ringo Starr and John Lennon, before they took the world by storm. An ordinary girl from Liverpool with an amazing voice, but with the down-to-earth attitude that she has never really lost through fame.

The first part of the series ended with her terrible audition in front of the famous Brian Epstein, which she messed up when her nerves got the better of her. Sheridan portrays Cilla really well, in fact this lovely young actress is fast becoming a household name herself. I thought she was really good as Smithy’s sister in Gavin and Stacey, and she has real talent for adapting her characters.

For lots of us viewers, we remember Cilla best for the days of ‘Blind Date’ and there is so much more to her, and it is nice to find out that she was a very talented singer long before this.

The first part of this drama attracted seven million viewers, so there are clearly more Cilla fans than you might expect. An enjoyable program and an interesting story about this great lady.
