Son says Cilla Black would be 'thrilled' with new musical

By Lucy Mapstone

The son of Cilla Black has said the late star would be thrilled with her life story being turned into a musical and that he is working on the production partly for "selfish" reasons, because he misses her.

Black died of a stroke in August 2015 after falling and hitting her head at her Spanish villa at the age of 72.

Robert, the eldest of Black's three sons, appeared on ITV's This Morning to announce a casting call for the musical production. He said: "She would have loved it and it would have meant a lot to her."

Although the leading role has yet to be cast, Cilla, The Musical will tour the UK and kicks off in Liverpool in September.
