  Cilla Black Friday 5 September 2003  
Cilla Black with Martha
Born Priscilla Maria Veronica White, Cilla Black was the only girl to come out of the Merseybeat explosion of the early 1960s.

From poor beginnings in Liverpool's Scottie, Scotland Road, by her 21st birthday she was playing the London Palladium having become the first British women to have two successive number one hits - Anyone who had a Heart and You're my World.
Cilla Black joins Martha to talk for the first time about the break-in, those early days, life without her beloved husband Bobby and what the future holds as she celebrates her 60th birthday.
'What's it all About' by Cilla Black is published by Ebury Press; ISBN: 0-09189036-5, £17.99
