Cilla Black's son Robert Willis has revealed the entertainer spent her last hours alive "killing herself laughing" at The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Black died of a stroke on August 1 after falling and hitting her head at her Spanish villa.

He said: "Her hearing had started to go so she had to start wearing hearing aids. Typical of my mum, she wouldn't wear them. I'd gone for a jog, gone for a swim and stuff. She was sitting around having a glass of champagne, killing herself laughing at Jeremy Kyle - without the hearing aids obviously, so blaring out across Marbella. We hung out and at about 1 o'clock, I said I was going to do a shop. I said goodbye and that was the last time I saw her."
