A Book of Condolence for Cilla Black has been opened at Liverpool Town Hall.
It will be available for people to sign from 9am to 5pm every day until Friday.
The Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said:
“It was very sad news to hear of the death of Cilla. An incredible talent whose warmth shone through in everything she did. A star in the truest sense of the word, she will be sorely missed by her legions of fans and by all of us here in her home city, Liverpool.”
Christopher Biggins has revealed he last spoke to close friend Cilla Black 10 days ago and they had made plans to go on holiday together next month.
The actor, who co-hosted Surprise Surprise with Cilla in the 1980s, told Good Morning Britain the pair had planned a trip to Barbados in September.
He said: "I spoke to her 10 days ago. We had not seen each other for a little while.
"She'd had bad arthritis and her hearing was not good which meant it was difficult to talk on the phone.
"But we said we'll meet in September. She said why don't you come to Barbados and we'll arrange that."
Biggins said the loss of Cilla was "terrible for everyone" and called her "the people's sweetheart".
He said: "She was so loved. Everybody adored her. I think that's why everyone is in such grief now. It really is a sadness that everybody is being affected by. It's a bit like Princess Diana dying."
Cilla Black may have fallen over shortly before she died at her Spanish holiday home, it is reported.
Medical examiners found marks on her right arm and elbow which suggest she may have had a "dizzy turn", according to The Sun.
The TV star's body is said to have been discovered by her son Bobby who the newspaper reports broke her bedroom door down when she failed to rise after an afternoon nap.
Paramedics arrived at the Costa Del Sol property around 6pm on Saturday but there was nothing they could do to save her.
A post-mortem is due to take place today but it is thought it could take several weeks for the results.

Dale Winton has spoken out for the first time since Cilla Black's death saying she was the "most loyal person a friend could have".
The TV presenter famously had a long-standing friendship with Cilla and the pair often holidayed together.
He told ITV News he was "too upset to speak" on camera but released this statement saying he was "truly saddened and shocked" Cilla had gone.
Cilla was a dear and close friend. Above all she was the most loyal person a friend could have.
She was wonderful to be around, and caring, kind and happy. She was also a brilliant wife and mother.
As her friend, she would want everyone to know and appreciate how fantastic Bobby was for the 40 years they were together.
They were inseparable 24/7 for all of that time, and together they were like two swans side by side.
She was a true "star" and a genuine national icon. My thoughts and best wishes are with her beloved boys and family.
We shall all miss her deeply, and I personally have lost a true, trusted and loyal friend.
