"Cilla Black " Officer of the Order of the British Empire/OBE is an English singer, actress, entertainer and media personality. Championed by The Beatles, she began her career as a singer in 1963, and her singles "Anyone Who Had a Heart (song)/Anyone Who Had a Heart" (1964) and "You're My World" (1964) both reached number one. Black had eleven Top Ten hits on the UK Singles Chart/British charts between 1964 and 1971. In May 2010 new research published by BBC Radio 2 showed that her version of "Anyone Who Had a Heart" was the UK's biggest selling single by a female artist in the 1960s. "You're My World" was also a modest hit in the United States, peaking at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100/Billboard Hot 100, and both songs were among the chart-toppers in Australia.

Along with a successful recording career in the 1960s and early 1970s, Black hosted her own eponymous variety show, Cilla, for the BBC between 1968 and 1976. After a brief time as a comedy actress in the late 1970s, she became a prominent television presenter in the 1980s and 1990s, hosting hit entertainment shows such as Blind Date (UK TV series)/Blind Date (1985–2003) and Surprise Surprise (TV series)/Surprise Surprise (1984–2001).

Nothing is a career move. Everything I've done this year has so not been a career move.

The difference with me is that I did inhale.

I never did acid, I am just so high anyway.

I?m a sacred cow.

But reality television is here to stay.

Well it has been very exciting and very changing as well. Celebrating the 40th year and having the album out and the Channel 4 documentary and I resigned from Blind Date.

The best advice he gave me was to carry on. It would have been difficult to set foot back inside a TV studio if I hadn't carried on - I don't know if I would have ever gone back in.

I love Simon Cowell, he's a dear friend.

It was an unknown thing, a lot of people had very bad trips and I like to be in control.
