Guests and mourners have arrived for Cilla Black's funeral which begins at 1pm this afternoon.
Tom Jones reportedly flew back from abroad to be in Liverpool to say goodbye to Cilla. He described Cilla as a "person who loved people" and " a working class girl made good".
An emotional Jimmy Tarbuck said he "would have walked here" to be at Cilla's final farewell. He said his "heart bleeds for the her sons".
Also among the mourners were Les Dennis and Carol Vorderman.
Singer Gerry Marsden was also there to say goodbye.
Paul O'Grady, who will give a eulogy at the funeral, described Cilla as his "best friend".
Earlier Christopher Biggins said Cilla would have loved seeing the tributes on the streets from the people of Liverpool.
The service takes place at St. Mary's Church in Woolton from 1pm and is being streamed live on the ITV Granada and ITV National websites.
