Former singer and Blind Date host Cilla Black has passed away at the age of 72.
Spanish police have confirmed her death saying, ‘We 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.’
In December, Cilla revealed how she was struggling with deafness and arthritis and said she was ‘falling apart’ as she received an award to mark her long career.
Despite her medical troubles, she insisted at the time that she was ‘embracing old age’ and ‘didn’t care’ about getting older.
In 2010 she revealed that she hoped to die at 75 before any illness prevented her from living life to the full.
