Coming soon: Cilla

Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs, The 7.39, Gavin & Stacey) stars as Liverpudlian songbird and TV star Cilla, one of our most exciting new dramas coming to ITV this autumn.

Cilla tells the story of her rocky rise to fame and will capture the essence of 1960s Liverpool and the atmosphere of promise and excitement as the Merseybeat music scene exploded and The Beatles - friends of Cilla's - hit the big time.

We'll see how Cilla's steely determination saw her go from working as a typist at a local company to recording songs at the world famous Abbey Road Studios and also how she met the two men who would change her life: future husband Bobby Willis and legendary music manager Brian Epstein.

Check out the ITV, Where Drama Lives Autumn Trailer for a glimpse of Cilla and much more, below.
