Cilla's first married couple

Sue and Alex Tatham met 27 years ago on Cilla Black's Blind Date and were the first couple to wed from the dating show. Cilla and her husband Bobby attended their wedding in 1991 as guests of honour. The whole ceremony was filmed for a special edition of the programme and police had to erect crash barriers to cope with the 3,000 well-wishers who turned up!

Jenni Falconer was also a contestant on the show 20 years ago, before she started her career on TV. She also interviewed Cilla on the red carpet before she collected her BAFTA in 2014. The three of them join us to talk about their memories of Cilla.

Sarah Harding adresses Corrie critics

If anything, I channel that into positive energy, it makes me more determined

– Sarah Harding isn't bothered by her Coronation Street cirtics

She rose to fame in 2002 when she auditioned for the reality television show Popstars: The Rivals on ITV and went on to become a member of one of Britain's biggest girl bands Girls Aloud. Two years after the girls went their separate ways, Sarah Harding is back with her first solo single, Threads.

Sarah's also made her debut appearance in one of the country's best loved soaps, showing up on the cobbles of Corrie, which hasn't gone down too well with critics.

Remembering TV icon Cilla Black

She was so wonderful, and I can't believe she's no longer here

– Lionel Blair

Iconic showbiz star Cilla Black sadly passed away over the weekend at her Spanish home in Marbella, aged 72. Her impressive career spanned over 50 years and enjoyed musical hits as well as TV shows like Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.

A career that spanned more than 50 years began at The Cavern Club in Liverpool in the sixties, where Priscilla White, as she was then known, was a young cloakroom assistant who hung out with The Beatles.

It was John Lennon who introduced her to the band's management, and her music career took off - scoring 11 Top 10 hits, 20 consecutive Top 40 hits and two No 1 singles.

Cilla's cheeky sense of humour caught the eye of TV producers and she soon became one of Britain's best-loved entertainers, capturing the nation's heart.

In the 70s, 20 million people would sit down to watch Cilla, and by the 90s, she was the queen of Saturday night television, hosting shows Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.

But despite the fame and fortune, Cilla remained down to earth. Even when the girl left Liverpool, Liverpool never really left the girl.
