Cilla Black is posthumously back in the charts after more than 30 years, with her compilation album The Very Best Of.

The greatest hits collection re-released in 2013, has landed its highest ever UK chart position at number 14, as fans pay tribute to the TV star and singer, who died of a stroke after falling and hitting her head at her Spanish villa last weekend.

It is Black's highest charting album in 47 years, since Sher-oo in 1968, according to the Official Charts Company.

Anyone Who Had A Heart, her first number one single has also returned to the charts at number 41 in the singles chart, marking its highest chart position in 51 years.
