Cilla Says...

Cilla Cartoon

Cilla Black is a woman with more catch phrases than Tommy Cooper.

Not only are her words memorable but her dulcet tones (?), 'interesting' pronunciation and addition of letters invisible to the normal eye make her one of Britain's best known voices.

Cilla's Top Five Catchphrases:

  1. "And here’s our Graham with a quick reminder."

  2. "Surprise, surprise it's Cilla here."

  3. "What’s your name and where d’ya come from?"

  4. "Lorra lorra laughs"

  5. "Do I need to buy a new hat?"
