Cilla Black was a truly wonderful woman, so we were terribly saddened to hear of her passing yesterday at the age of 72. It seems as though everyone we know had their lives somewhat touched by Cilla, so whether you loved her singing or just sat down to watch Blind Date every night in the 90s, here are our top 10 favourite moments from the showbiz veteran…

1. When Mr Bean tried his luck at a blind date

It takes an expert to be able to handle this sort of situation!


2. When she outed the Cosmopolitan journalist

What could have been television's most awkward moment was saved by Cilla being the class act that she was.


3. When she returned to Surprise Surprise

I'm not crying, you're crying.


4. Her number 1 single, Anyone Who Had a Heart

It's easy to forget that, as well as being a television host, Cilla was also an incredible singer. This is amazing.


5, When she won the BAFTA Lifetime Achievement Award

That standing ovation though!


6. When THIS guy came on the show

Worst contestant ever? He had a sooty puppet and was wearing THAT tracksuit? Argh the sheer nineties of it all!


7. When she brought together a family on Surprise Surprise

There wasn't a dry eye in the house, and for good reason!


8. When she performed Gypsy with Lilly Savage and we had to cover our eyes

So wonderful. So cringe.


9. When she introduced Linda to The Bee Gees and she went crazy

We love how old school this all is. Major nostalgia trip!


10. When she and Paul O’Grady sang Baby it’s cold outside and it was adorable

Love them.
