Cilla Black, the singer and much-loved television presenter, has died.
Black’s showbiz career began in the clubs of Liverpool, where she often sang alongside her friends The Beatles.
It was John Lennon and Paul McCartney who wrote Black’s first single, Love of the Loved, which went to number 35 in the charts. However, it was her version of Anyone Who Had a Heart, originally recorded by Dionne Warwick, that propelled her to number one and set her on the way to becoming a national treasure.
