TV Legend Cilla Black Dies Aged 72

We’re sad about this one. The iconic Blind Date presenter, Cilla Black has passed away. The TV host died today, from natural causes, at her home in Marbella, Spain according to The Telegraph. A Spanish police spokesperson told The Telegraph: “I can confirm the death of British national Priscilla White, aged 72.”

“We are still awaiting autopsy results but everything at this stage is pointing towards her death being the result of natural causes.”

Police sources said they thought the death had occurred overnight and they believed Cilla, who suffered from hearing problems and arthritis, had jetted to Spain a few days ago with one of her three sons.

In a recent interview, the musician and TV star said she did not want to live beyond the age of 75. “Seventy-five is a good age to go if things start to drop off,” Cilla said.

“I don’t want to linger. I don’t want to be a burden on anybody. I know 75 is only four years away, but I take each day as I find it.”

Naturally, tributes are pouring in for the star, from the likes of Joan Collins and others. Nearly all of us remember watching Blind Date at some point growing up, there was never as good a show (it was cheesy in a good way), once it ended.

Sad news indeed, our thoughts are with Cilla’s family and friends.
