Brits: Cilla Black?

Hi Team,

Just wanting to know, if Cilla Black is still a draw card over there in the UK? Or has she slipped out of* the lime light? Does she still give public appearances? or sing for that matter still?

You slip out of the limelight, not into it.

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." -- Muhammad Ali

Yes, an obvious gaff on my behalf. How unfortunate, woe is me.

She still gets on the telly a fair bit, I mean back in the 90s she was on Primetime TV at least once a week.

Heard reports she is a massive diva and rather rude when you meet her though.

I've only ever seen her once on Loose Women and a documentary on The Royal Variety. I had no idea who she was and I'm not a fan of her cackling accent. Which is a bit rich given my Geordie accent!

All the best for 2012 to:

Ana; Maria; Vika

Come on Caroline, prove everyone wrong!

She's one of the few celebrities that I've only heard negative things about from people who've met her in person.

Same here, NEVER heard a good report about her.

Typical New Money Tory type rude and condescending once they get a few bob.
